'The global solution isn't working' - new four-way alliance aims to challenge international giants

Leaders of new insurance alliance set out alternative to service offered by global legal giants


“Global firms are exceptional in some regions, but in other regions the quality is patchy. The difference here is you have four best-in-region law firms coming together,” says David Kearney, chief executive partner of Australia’s Wotton + Kearney, one of a quartet of firms that have joined forces for a new insurance law alliance covering four key markets around the world.

Kearney continues: “Clients are saying to us – ‘The global solution we are getting from global law firms isn’t working’”. In response, the firms have formed Legalign Global, a four-way alliance covering the UK, US, Germany and Australia, which the member firms claim will be able to provide clients with global coverage without sacrificing quality.
