Brokerslink signs new deal to provide global legal expertise
Global broking business Brokerslink has added a new specialist firm to its network as it continues to extend the range of services available to its independent brokers. Wilson Elser, one of the most influential law firms in the United States, with 38 strategically located offices and more than 800 attorneys, will support the organisation’s global network by providing access to dedicated insurance legal expertise.
Wilson Elser is a founding member of Legalign Global, an alliance of four of the world’s leading insurance law firms with more than 60 locations worldwide. The alliance combines insurance industry and legal expertise exclusively focused on (re)insurance coverage, (re)insurance defense, and insurance regulatory and compliance services. The alliance’s ability to provide in-depth local market knowledge and expertise throughout Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and North America is closely aligned with the Brokerslink philosophy and structure, making it a natural strategic partner for the organisation.
Brokerslink’s Chairman José Manuel Fonseca commented on the importance of the new partnership:
“When the Brokerslink and Wilson Elser teams first met at the RIMS conference in San Antonio in 2018, we recognized the potential of working together to add real value to partners and affiliates and their clients by aligning our respective expertise and global capabilities. I am delighted that we are able to launch this global legal service for the network.”
Wilson Elser Chairman Dan McMahon reinforced the benefits:
“Wilson Elser has long held Brokerslink in high esteem. We share a common, “client-centric” service philosophy and enjoy remarkably similar cultures. While we have been pleased with our past interactions and collaborations, we are thrilled to be entering into a formal arrangement − one that will allow us to better serve our clients on a global basis.”
