Insurance brokers

We act for a range of insurance brokers, from smaller specialist firms to international, national and large regional practices. We are recommended by leading broker networks to their members as a 'go-to' firm and have been instructed to provide bespoke training to several hundred brokers on strategic issues arising from the Insurance Act 2015.

We provide pragmatic, commercial advice that helps our clients achieve their objectives. We work with brokerage firms on the development of new products, and in relation to the introduction of systems, controls and governance models to reduce conduct risk and increase policyholder satisfaction and loyalty. We develop strong and effective relationships with clients by investing in attaining a deep understanding of our client’s needs and expectations. This allows us to adopt an approach which is bespoke to our client's specific business models and culture.

We combine our extensive knowledge of the insurance sector with our broader commercial expertise to advise insurers, brokers and other market participants in relation to all aspects of their business.

  • Risk management - we advise on the implementation of systems and controls to minimise the risk of claims and regulatory intervention.
