About Us

Our national team of 400 insurance lawyers led by 40 partners prides itself on providing highly responsive solution driven expertise to leading global and national insurers, the London Market, insurance related intermediary organisations and also counts numerous 'household names' self-insured organisations amongst its clients.

We provide a full service claims proposition from first notification of loss through to strategic litigation across a broad range of insurance disciplines, including motor, casualty, property damage and business interruption, product liability, directors and officers, political risk and terrorism, professional risks, cyber, regulatory, reinsurance, subrogation, recoveries, marine and goods in transit. We handle all sizes of claims with an estimated $3.3 billion of claims reserves under our management at any one time.

Our service is by no means limited to claims, we also provide strategic guidance for our insurer clients, monitoring the horizon for legislative, social and economic change, to help our clients either insulate against any negative effects or maximise any benefits. We not only monitor the horizon, but actively engage with the market to effect change. We are committed to engaging with our clients to develop a deep understanding of their complete legal needs and requirements.

We are acutely aware that the Insurance industry is fast moving and innovative. As a key strategic supplier to the insurance industry, we understand our responsibilities to invest in our future to take full advantage of technologies such as AI to deliver practical service delivery solutions.

Increasing international political and environmental risks alongside emerging threats from cybercrime and insurance industry disruptors have led to a demand for new legal services and often across multiple jurisdictions. To meet this demand we have founded non-exclusive network Insurance Law Global (ILG) alongside colleague firms from Canada, USA and Spain. ILG is a non exclusive network assisting clients in responding to the multiplicity of challenges presented by increased globalisation. ILG continues to grow and has recently welcome representatives from the Netherlands.

Weightmans is an Associate Member of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and is the current sponsor of the ABI's executive development programme, Future Leaders 2018/19.
