InsurTech enables traditional insurers to access new routes to market and to capitalise on technologies, such as AI and data analytics, that will enhance competitiveness and in turn is expected to reduce risks. We have also seen an increased appetite of tech-focussed venture capital firms investing in what is a traditional and highly-regulated sector.

Our market-leading, full-service InsurTech team provides expert, partner-led advice to enable InsurTech businesses and their investors achieve their strategic transactional objectives.

Many of our InsurTech clients are members of our Grow programme - our innovative legal support offering for start-ups and scaling businesses. Grow offers a wide range of benefits including:

  • a dedicated Grow adviser – a lawyer below partner level and who clients can access for quick queries and advice and whose time and expertise is not charged

  • free training on legal topics of choice
