AXA has unveiled its full 14-member global legal panel, but will continue to work with a number of other firms in local jurisdictions.
As first reported by The Lawyer (23 October), Eversheds was the surprise inclusion on the insurance giant's first global legal panel, while City insurance boutique Kendall Freeman has also found a place.
UK general counsel Ed Davies told The Lawyer: "There will be a number of other firms we'll continue to work with in jurisdiction-specific areas. This panel has not tried to cover all the local needs of every territory we operate in.
"These are all firms we've had a relationship with to date and have worked with on corporate matters or complex claims, and they're all firms that can work on a multijurisdictional basis for us."
