Marshall Dennehey Partners With International Law Firms to Launch Insurance Law Global Network

Four law firms from across Europe and North America have launched a new multi-jurisdiction legal network to provide a global service to insurance clients.

The Insurance Law Global (ILG) network is made up of founding law firms from the UK, Spain, Canada and the USA. The firms will collaborate on a non-exclusive basis to help clients respond to the challenges presented by globalisation and the increasingly dynamic political and environmental landscape.

In the UK, the network is represented by leading law firm Weightmans, which will work alongside fellow founders Blaney McMurtry of Canada, Spanish firm LC Rodrigo Abogados and the USA’s Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin.

Collectively ILG has bases in 30 cities across six countries.

ILG was launched at a conference in London last week, which brought together delegates from the UK insurance sector and representatives of the founding firms. ILG discussed the emerging issues affecting global insurance claims, including cyber threats, the impact of climate change on catastrophic loss and the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to transform the claims process.

The formation of the network was led by Weightmans. Dan Cutts, Senior Partner at the firm said: “The legal services market - and the way in which our clients need us to work - is changing. By bringing together law firms with exceptional pedigree and experience in the global insurance market, we are formalising a collaborative approach to respond to the challenge. Our partnerships will ensure we can continue to deliver legal support to our insurer clients in an increasingly globalised environment.”

Thomas A. Brophy, President & CEO of Marshall Dennehey, said: "Our insurers and their insureds increasingly conduct business globally.  While we have been doing business in the London market for 15 years or more, partnering with these three other international firms enhances the defense capabilities that we offer our business partners and clients. We were very selective in choosing our network partners and we are excited that we aligned with first in class firms who share our values:  high caliber representation; strong commitment to client service; practical, results-driven litigation mindset; and positive firm culture."
