Called Insurance Law Global (ILG), the network is composed of founding law firms from the UK (Weightmans), Spain (LC Rodrigo Abogados), Canada (Blaney McMurtry), and the USA (Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin).

The network was launched at a conference in London last week. During the event, ILG discussed the emerging issues currently affecting global insurance claims.
“The legal services market - and the way in which our clients need us to work - is changing,” said Weightmans senior partner Dan Cutts.
“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 globalized environment.”
“We are very proud to be a founding member of the Insurance Law Global network, an organization created to meet the increasingly diverse needs of the global insurance industry and to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing across multiple jurisdictions,” stated Blaney McMurtry managing partner Maria Scarfo.
“As the needs of clients become more complex, our network of leading insurance law firms will help to ensure that they continue to receive the consistent, high quality expertise and service they have come to expect, wherever their business takes them.
