Browne Jacobson retained on insurance legal panel serving consortium of London boroughs

27 June 2018

Browne Jacobson has been re-appointed to the Insurance London Consortium’s (ILC) panel following a competitive tender process. The appointment is for a five year term, commencing 1 July 2018. The ILC was launched in July 2009 to provide strategic focus for insurance and risk management and to support collaborative working between Consortium Members.

The re-appointment will see Browne Jacobson, along with four other law firms, advise seven boroughs: the London boroughs of Croydon, Haringey, Harrow, Islington, Sutton, Tower Hamlets and the Royal borough of Kingston upon Thames on a range of litigated insurance claims.

The claims handled will include public liability, employers’ liability, motor, property and officials’ indemnity claims arising out of a range of local government functions such as highways, housing, schools and social care.

James Fawcett insurance sector partner in the firm’s local authority litigation team, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be re-appointed to the ILC panel, which is an excellent example of how local authorities can work collaboratively to procure high quality legal services whilst driving efficiency.

“The consortium has a number of Risk Management Initiatives in the pipeline and we look forward to helping the consortium deliver those initiatives to improve the members’ risk profiles.

“We are one of a very small number of firms nationally that can bring the necessary depth of public and insurance sector expertise and knowledge to the table in effectively managing these specialist types of claims and risks.”
