InsurTech UK - Legal Partner

Expertise

We can help with all legal and commercial issues that you might come across. 

If you’re an insurer, we can advise on the regulatory and compliance issues around new technologies and platforms, or on commercial terms and partnership contracts.  

If you’re a tech organisation, we’ve got lots of experience advising start-ups and scaling businesses that are now themselves regulated insurance entities. We’ll help with the full spectrum of commercial legal services—from corporate to intellectual property and brand protection, regulation and compliance to commercial contracts. 

Our service is flexible, as are our fees. Let’s discuss what works for you.
