Minter Ellison’s insurance practice is one of the largest in Australia and truly national. Our knowledge of the insurance industry is second to none and it enables us to tailor advice that focuses on the client and their business objectives.
Providing legal services to the insurance industry is about more than just giving the best advice. It requires deep industry understanding, an appreciation of issues and challenges facing insurers and the ability to adapt to changing client needs.
Minter Ellison has been awarded ANZIIF Law Firm of the Year for an unprecedented fourth time — 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Furthermore, in October 2012, Minter Ellison was awarded Insurance Law Firm of the Year at the Asia-Pacific Banking & Finance annual Insurance Awards.
We are the only top tier law firm in Australia to maintain a comprehensive ‘front-end’ practice (policy wording/drafting and advice, corporate advisory, reinsurance, agency agreements) and ‘back-end’ claims practice (including professional indemnity, D&O, product liability, asbestos, life, marine, aviation, self-insureds, government and industrial special risks). We also have significant expertise defending litigation (including class actions) on complex insurance issues.
We have strong professional links with peak industry bodies and consistently support associations through attendance, presentations, sponsorship and involvement in working groups. Our industry involvement assists us to advise clients effectively on the impact of legislative and regulatory changes.
