Ever wondered who to trust if your firm runs into legal trouble? Now an independent guide believes it has come up with the definitive answer.

The Legal 500, a guide for the buyers of legal services, has revealed what it considers to be the UK’s top insurance law firms. It claims to have put together the “largest and most in-depth annual analysis of the UK’s legal market” relying on thousands of submissions from barristers’ chambers, law firms and interviews with more than 25,000 clients.

Alexander Boyes, editor of The Legal 500, said: “Pressures on the cost of capital and regulatory difficulties have continued to drive consolidation among both insurers and brokers, and lack of product development is expected to drive further consolidation within the reinsurance market.
“Regulatory changes continue to be one of the main risks facing insurers in the market. This has increased demand for advisory work.”

With that in mind here is the list of the leading insurance law firms in the UK, according to the publication.
