The stellar insurance team at this sizable mid-tier firm enjoys vast firepower within the contentious and non-contentious insurance sphere.
Instructions are drawn from domestic and international insurers, London market syndicates, underwriters and self-insureds with respect of most classes of insurance (expect for CTP). By far their strongest offering in an insurance context is general insurance, public liability and professional indemnity. Their unwaivering dedication to the insurance space is noted by their astronomical client set, ability to attract and retain industry leading Partners.
On the back of a strategic planning meeting the directive is to attract laterals at Partner level with a following (thresholds can be discussed) from rival firms. Your specialism will reflect pure public liability and general insurance or professional indemnity; otherwise a mix of the aforementioned is fine. Contingent upon your attractiveness (in financial terms) Partnership structuring is negotiable.
Culturally, the firm is regarded as one of the more supportive; providing flexibility for working mums (and dads), one-on-one career counselling every couple of months and a concern for their staff psychological wellbeing. This makes for somewhat of a unified law firm with solid retention.
