Legalign Global will focus on three primary areas: insurance and reinsurance coverage; insurance and reinsurance defence; and insurance regulatory and compliance.

“The globalisation of our economy has resulted in an increasing number of companies conducting business across jurisdictions, requiring multinational insurance programs and creating a demand for high-quality, consistent legal representation when cross-border disputes occur,” David Kearney, chief executive partner of Wotton + Kearney said when announcing the deal.

The partnership aims to pair local insight with global reach in a bid to match the global service many insurance firms and brokers need as expansion remains a priority for the industry.
