Lawyers

Lawyers and legal firms trust us to solve their most complex claims, legal, regulatory and business problems.

Our Legal Professions team advises law firms, insurers, and alternative business structures (ABSs) on all aspects of their practices.

Specialising in the defence of claims, we've handled some of the largest, most complex and sensitive disputes the profession has seen in recent years. These have involved all types of firm, from the magic circle to high-street practices.

Many of our team members are in the First Tier of Chambers and the Legal 500. They're on hand to provide you with expert advice in regulatory and disciplinary issues, including complaints, investigations, prosecutions and tribunals.

For insurers, we can manage whole accounts, handle claims, provide policy wordings and help with product development.

We also advise on new business structures, incorporation and outsourcing.
