Digital transformation in insurance

All operational units and legacy processes (including product manufacture and target market assessments, underwriting and claims) face challenges from new digital systems.

These systems aren’t just upgrades, but give rise to increased competition, and requirements from capacity providers and distributors, to meet customer and regulator expectations as to service speed, precision and efficiency.

We are well placed to help IT systems suppliers and purchasers across the insurance markets with our team of specialist tech, data, commercial and regulatory lawyers.
