The “Best Friends” Insurance Group works together to allow our clients to leverage off the leading market position of each firm and its outstanding reputation within its home jurisdiction. We also look to exchange information about developments in our individual jurisdictions to provide unparalleled insights for our clients. At the same time, we aim to provide advice that considers the broader impact of developments of common interest to the European insurance industry, taking account of our wider experience to add value.
Clients in the insurance sector increasingly require cutting-edge legal advice to meet their requirements both nationally and internationally. This trend is being accelerated because developments in European legislation and case law are increasingly influencing the approach in individual jurisdictions. Regulators’ policies in any European jurisdiction are also beginning to serve as precedents for regulators in other jurisdictions since regulators more frequently work together. Simultaneously, the influence of other bodies such as EIOPA and the European Commission continues to increase.
