Browne Jacobson wins Law Firm of the Year at Reactions London Market Awards 2020

1 September 2020

Browne Jacobson has been named ‘Law Firm of the Year’ at the Reactions London Market Awards 2020.

The firm fought off strong competition from a number of national firms including Kennedys and Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner to win the accolade.

The London Market Awards honour the industry’s leading underwriting companies, broking firms and service providers for their achievements in the past calendar year.

Browne Jacobson was judged by a panel of high profile industry experts as a leading service provider in the sector and recognised for ‘thinking outside the box’ in helping an insurer deal with an unexpected surge of claims in a highly specialised class of business.

This year’s judging panel included Dominic Christian, Global Chairman, Aon Reinsurance Solutions; James Nash, CEO International, Guy Carpenter; Kate Markham, CEO, Hiscox London Market; Andrew Horton, CEO, Beazley; David Flandro, MD, Analytics, Hyperion X; and Dominick Hoare, Group CUO and Active Underwriter, Munich Re Syndicate.

Commenting on the award win, Reactions London Editor Mark Richardson said:

“Browne Jacobson proved the value a high-quality law firm can provide to an insurer in the London market. In the example put forward, Browne Jacobson worked quickly and efficiently to provide a solution, demonstrating how they can go outside their standard remit and produce a successful result.”

Jonathan Newbold, Head of Financial Services and Insurance at Browne Jacobson, commented:

“We are delighted to be recognised by the market for our innovative approach, which delivered a quick and efficient solution for our client. It is an honour to be named as Law Firm of the Year at the Reactions London Market Awards 2020. Thanks go to our clients for nominating and supporting us and to our insurance teams for the outstanding service they consistently provide.”
