Nigel Brook - Clyde & Co LLP

Within: Insurance and reinsurance litigation

With almost 200 partners across the UK involved in insurance work, a team that continues to recruit, and a client list that includes almost every leading (re)insurer globally - the likes of AIG, Allianz, Aviva, Swiss Re and Zurich - Clyde & Co LLP has earned its reputation as ‘a juggernaut for insurance matters’. The firm specialises in all types of insurance matters, spanning a variety of sectors and classes of insurance business, meaning it has the ‘ability to offer insurance companies the broadest coverage of business lines, at the highest quality and on a global scale’. This strength in depth is utilised in teams dedicated to specific sectors, such as aviation and space, directors' and officers' (D&O), marine, product liability/recall and cyber insurance. With regard to the latter, in September 2017 the firm launched Clyde Code, a consultancy service advising clients on all aspects of the burgeoning new area of smart contracts, blockchain and distributed ledger technology. Nigel Brook leads the global reinsurance team and James Cooper heads up the firm’s Lloyd's and London market practice. Another notable asset is the ‘very knowledgeable’ Neil Beresford, who provides ‘excellent service’, particularly for insurers and reinsurers, evidenced by instructions on some of the largest claims in the market with values in excess of $1bn. Jane Andrewartha and Andrew Grant, both well regarded for their ‘significant market acumen and specialist knowledge’, are also key members of the prolific team that also includes marine and energy insurance specialist Simon Jackson. David Abbott joined DWF in 2018.
