Zurich’s UK general counsel James Butler said the new panel would enable the insurer to achieve “significant cost savings”.
The five successful firms will advise Zurich on UK matters, including corporate, commercial, property and employment work in addition to core insurance law.

Butler added that the new panel was chosen for its industry knowledge and expertise as well as cost.
