Our insurance team includes experts with unique specialties, encompassing, in addition to general areas, niche areas of insurance law. This breadth and depth of scope enables Ashurst to offer clients insurance advice and solutions in the context of construction projects, M&A transactions, environmental matters and numerous other areas.

Our insurance industry clients value our understanding of the regulatory environment in which they operate and our ability to provide advice that takes into account their business environment.

We are leading advisors to some of Australia's largest insurers on a broad range of regulatory and non-contentious issues including capital adequacy, product development, insurance portfolio transfers, white labelling, captive insurance arrangements, distribution arrangements, reinsurance and regulatory compliance issues. We are also long term advisors to insureds, our work for insureds on non-contentious insurance matters is unmatched.

We are leading the market in evolving areas such as cyber insurance.

Our contractual insurance terms have become benchmarks in Australia.  We have also recently worked to develop innovative trade credit insurance arrangements, an insurance increasingly prominent given COVID19.
