Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons has the largest dedicated insurance practice in Hong Kong, our insurance lawyers are acknowledged market leaders in the industry.
Like any highly-regulated, fast-moving industry, insurance represents a challenging business environment. No one wants to spend extra time educating lawyers about their business. So Hong Kong, like many insurance markets, has been consolidating. A small number of dedicated insurance law firms now handle most of the large and complex work, yet Deacons is the market leader.
With the largest insurance practice in Hong Kong, our insurance lawyers offer support based on extensive local knowledge and excellent industry contacts, as well as in-depth understanding of insurance claims, policy and regulatory issues. Our strong position is acknowledged by independently-researched directories, such as Chambers Asia-Pacific and the Legal 500 Asia Pacific, which quoted client feedback on our “strong team” and “superior skill-set and industry knowledge”.
Our experienced insurance lawyers work closely with international and domestic insurers, intermediaries, regulators and others on a huge variety of insurance matters. These range from defending insurers and their insureds in large claims, to advising on regulatory issues and policy documentation. We also act in some of the most prominent corporate deals in the regional insurance market.
In addition, Deacons’ insurance lawyers helped to establish the quasi-statutory Hong Kong Federation of Insurers and drafted some of its model documents and codes.
So, whether you need advice on insurance and reinsurance policy issues, professional negligence, medical negligence, personal injury or property damage claims, we can help. And you can be confident that the team at Deacons, which represents many leading insurers, will be able to provide cutting-edge advice and high-quality services.
