“There was a need in the market for trade credit and surety clients to be able to access a network with one standard, covering multiple jurisdictions,” he said.
Member firms, which are screened by the organisation’s board, are required to have specialist expertise in all areas of insolvency and insurance law, with lawyers who are known for their work in trade credit insurance and surety/bonding matters.
“We have approached firms which have the expertise to deliver. With a rigorous membership plan in place, we will continue to add members to the network,” said John Rumpler, CEO and executive director of the network.
