Welcome to the third edition of the Global Insurance Law Connect RADAR report. Each year, as our network grows, this gathering of insurance law updates from around the globe becomes more and more comprehensive, and we are delighted to welcome new contributions this year from our members in the Netherlands and Turkey, WIJ Advocaten and Durukan, who, together, bring our total number of members up to eighteen. We continue to grow at pace, as more and more clients look to use our services in regions around the world, even in a restricted pandemic-hit world.
As you know, every member of the GILC network is a specialist in insurance, with dedicated teams who live and breathe their local insurance market. Together, we bring a uniquely skilled group of international insurance lawyers to every client that we work with; and we are delighted that this has brought us international network relationships with a number of new clients this year.
Meanwhile, in particular for our clients, it has been a year of great change. For the first time, many of the issues that our lawyers have reported as being currently critical in their markets have converged, with a truly universal focus on cyber, climate change and the impacts of the pandemic bringing new challenges to many markets. A subsidiary point, but one of much importance to all in our industry, is the follow-on impact of the ‘powering up’ of digital marketing, sales and claims processing, as insurance buyers around the globe move online permanently after a year of cultural change.
In this environment, it is all the more important that different markets share approaches, regulatory challenges and stories of innovation, and in this spirit, I welcome you to the third edition of the Global Insurance Law Connect RADAR report. I hope that its roundup of legal insurance news from around the world is both useful and informative.
We look forward to connecting with you around the topics contained within this report over the coming year, no matter what country you live in, and which member of our network represents your interests.
Our vision and focus is to use the strength and depth of our company to help our clients reduce the time and money they spend on managing risk. If you need a global group of legal advisers, delivering a creative, commercial and specialist service, talk to Global Insurance Law Connect today.
