Why are we different?
We are not your traditional Insurance law firm.
In this new connected era, nothing is the same, including legal services. We set out in 2012 with the single aim of delivering deep levels of traditional professional legal expertise but with entirely modern thinking.
With the insurance industry as our heartland, our 200+ clients comprise insurers, Lloyd’s agencies, brokers, intermediaries, MGAs and industry trade bodies who recognise us as the “go to firm”.
With an enviable pool of legal knowledge, led by David Coupe, we have a reputation for being approachable, straightforward and always commercially minded.
“The simple fact is that lawyers don’t see clients as the focus of their practice. Our philosophy puts the client at the heart of everything we do – from the creation of the business through all aspects of its growth and development – they are at the core.” ~ David Coupe, Senior Partner
