The legal elite 2013


In our annual legal survey, we aim to discover which law firms and lawyers are leading the field in the insurance and reinsurance space.

In order to compile our list of winners we approached a variety of sources from throughout the insurance, reinsurance and legal spheres. This included approaching the in-house counsel of insurers and reinsurers, as well as brokers and notable lawyers who work within the industry. The work was then coupled with our own research in order to arrive at our list of winners.

The results for the UK market revealed another good showing for Clyde & Co, following its merger with Barlow Lyde & Gilbert. The company was voted as an Overall Market Leader and a Market Leader in Claims and Reinsurance. Ince & Co was also favoured this year, claiming titles in the same three areas.

In the US market, Simpson Thacher & Bartlett was once again nominated as an Overall Market Leader, following on from last year’s successes when they received the highest votes in Litigation, Claims and Reinsurance. Sidley Austin were also awarded the title of Overall Market Leader within the US, raising the stakes since last year. Duane Morris, O’Melveny & Myers, Hogan Lovells and Mayer Brown were all Highly Commended.
