Legal 500 Asia Pacific
Like any highly-regulated, fast-moving industry, insurance represents a challenging business environment. No one wants to spend time educating their advisors 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, complex work. Deacons is the market leader.
With the largest insurance practice in Hong Kong, we 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, like Chambers & Partners and the Asia Pacific Legal 500, which quoted client feedback on our “strong team” and “superior skill-set and industry knowledge”.
Our experienced 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, often international, 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 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 litigation, professional negligence, personal injury or product liability, or specialist areas like insurance insolvency or life assurance, 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 a high quality service.
