Mike Brown, Chairperson of Global Insurance Law Connect, said: “We have built an organisation that can advise re/insurers, brokers and policyholders on the business of taking risks. The ability to offer a wide range of deep expert knowledge in lines of business such as product liability and cyber illustrates clearly how we can harness the power of our connectivity to help reduce the time and money spent on managing those risks”.
Aldo Ocampo, Partner at Ocampo 1890, commented: “We are pleased to be joining a network which is as much about shared values as depth and reach. We want to help clients to get the right results through mutual support, a clarity of purpose and by working collaboratively with other member firms. This way we can deliver local advice combined with international reach, helping our clients to grow their businesses internationally.”
