Financial service and insurance advisory
At Browne Jacobson, we combine our strength in depth as a full-service commercial law firm with our experience and expertise in the insurance sector to provide an unrivalled commercial service to our insurer clients, including insurers, brokers, managing general agents and InsurTech businesses.
We understand the regulatory environment in which our clients operate; an understanding we bring to all of our commercial advice whether it relates to data, M&A, restructuring, employment or general commercial issues. We keep abreast of all regulatory developments and have lawyers in all major disciplines who spend a significant amount of time advising our insurance clients. In short, we understand our clients’ markets and we speak their language.
All regulated insurance firms are expected to treat customers fairly and to consider fair outcomes in all of their dealings. We understand that the FCA’s new Consumer Duty will apply to most of our clients, and that many of the individuals we deal with will be subject to the Senior Managers and Certification Regime. Our work goes beyond commercial legal advice, and we’re also able to minimise your compliance and reputational risks.
