Camerons claims major signing in Singapore…

Cameron McKenna has formed an alliance with a Singapore insurance law specialist firm.

Camerons claims the exclusive relationship with Niru & Co is a major

strategic move towards building an international insurance practice.

But rival firms claim that the six-partner firm is not the leading

insurance player that Camerons claims.

Niru & Co was formed in 1978 and specialises in marine and non-marine

insurance, although lawyers in Singapore say it has yet to make much impact

in non-marine law. The firm also has a small office in Kuala Lumpur,

Malaysia.

Under the terms of the alliance, Camerons insurance and reinsurance

partner Jonathan Wright will go to Singapore in August.
