Not to be confused with informal or “paper” confederations, our member firms enjoy a proven track record of working fluidly and efficiently across regions, allowing us to provide clients with a powerful combination of benefits.
Genuine Insurance Industry and Market Understanding
Legalign Global member firms possess in-depth knowledge of our clients’ key industry drivers and the market dynamics in which they operate, and we understand the implications for their respective businesses by virtue of our focus on the insurance industry and insurance law.
Local Insight/International Reach
Our firms offer their services in multiple key jurisdictions worldwide. Lawyers are—or can easily be—at or in close proximity to where claims originate or are litigated. We are familiar with the substance and subtleties of local authorities, economies, codes, courts and cultures. Able to anticipate changes in global and local markets, we react swiftly, effectively and resourcefully.
Quality Control through a Service Model
Regardless of venue, clients can expect uniformly high levels of service. Our member firms place the greatest premium on accessibility, rapport and responsiveness. Each member firm has an outstanding reputation in its respective global region and is held to the same exacting standards. To the extent that matters cross borders, Legalign Global members live by a common Client Service Charter that enables them to coordinate responses amongst themselves and within an agreed set of claims management principles. Clients are free of this responsibility and can deal with one authoritative point of contact who—literally and substantively—speaks their language.
Not to be confused with informal or "paper" confederations, our member firms enjoy a proven track record of working fluidly and efficiently across regions, allowing us to provide clients with a powerful combination of benefits.
Our firms' structure mirrors that of the insurance industry with emphasis placed on performance and results. Work processes are secure, accurate and streamlined and, whenever possible, standardised and digitised. Member firms share a culture that values transparency, honesty and respect whether working with clients or our colleagues. Perhaps this helps explain why each of these firms counts relationships with so many key clients in decades rather than years.
Given the heritage of each member firm in the tightly regulated insurance industry, all are accustomed to managing fees to closely monitored and agreed budgets and have honed a culture of uncompromising efficiency. Our firms are relentless in ensuring that our clients receive the right amount of legal resources—no more, no less. As part of our litigation strategy, we strive to maintain an enviable record of success in managing the litigation process to achieve resolution in the shortest time practical for the right legal and commercial outcome. Collectively, our efficiencies are magnified, especially given the cost and time otherwise required to coordinate the efforts and activities of multiple legal resources.
Vast Intellectual Capital
Insurers and their customers are able to draw on any of the more than 2,000 lawyers within the alliance. Member firms freely share information, insights and industry trends across regions and across business lines, bringing to bear the best of our collective intellectual capital for the benefit of our clients. When it advances our clients’ objectives, we do not hesitate to create an ensemble of lawyers and other specialists from our member firms.
Innovative Claims Solutions
Legalign Global member firms share claims management and alternative pricing models that align with clients’ distinct needs. These arrangements are premised on providing cost-effective, timely and commercially focused results generating creative solutions to both local and global problems and further cementing true partnership. Drawing on robust, state-of-the-art technologies and implementing “best practice” legal project management methodologies, we seek to resolve claims as quickly as possible and help our clients with their most ambitious goals.
