Our team is made up of recognised industry leaders with decades of experience in the private equity insurance sector, making us uniquely placed to meet your specific needs.

We bring together lawyers, ex-underwriters and risk managers, who each have an in-depth understanding of the unique risks facing firms in your industry. Our engagement across each Lockton business unit is seamless; we work as one team, taking a holistic approach to assessing your particular risks.

Lockton’s flat structure means that our clients benefit from a ‘hands-on’ approach from our most senior people. We’re driven by your firm’s needs and strategic direction, not by the renewal cycle.
