The Australian insurance market is one of the most highly-regulated, complex and competitive markets in the world. At Colin Biggers & Paisley, we understand the insurance market and the importance of providing efficient claims management and legal services to our clients. 
Our team of insurance lawyers includes over 70 insurance lawyers who combine their claims, regulatory and litigation experience with their industry experience.

We are internationally recognised for our full service expertise in all aspects of insurance law. In 2017, Chambers and Partners ranked our insurance practice Band 1 and recognised three of our partners for their expertise. In addition, our insurance practice was named Law Firm of the Year in the 2018 and 2019 editions of The Best Lawyers In Australia. 

We provide tailored legal advice on high-end insurance and risk matters for the insurance industry. We act on a national and international basis for a broad range of stakeholders, including domestic insurers and reinsurers, Lloyd’s syndicates and the London Companies markets, as well as underwriting agencies, brokers, claims managers, TPAs and insureds.
