HCR Law’s Insurance & Risk division achieves stellar growth in under two years 150 150 Haggie Partners

HCR Insurance & Risk, the challenger specialist insurance practice of top 60 UK law firm HCR, today announces it has trebled in size since launching in 2022.

The practice is led by partner Jonathan Edwards, who brings a deep knowledge of the insurance sector through previous roles at Clyde & co and BLM, and is advised by ex-Zurich UK GI CEO Guy Munnoch. The team has grown to 12 highly skilled members of staff including Leanne Conisbee, partner, who joined in 2023, bringing significant experience at firms such as Clyde & co and BLM.

Over the last year the team has attracted leading insurers to its client base. It has acted for more than 70 clients requiring advice and support with policy reviews and disputes, claims resolution, inquests, regulatory investigations and prosecutions, crisis management and risk reviews. The team also support growing companies with the M&A due diligence process.

This success hinges on HCR’s modern and client-centric model, which takes a partnership approach to working with clients and is fast gaining recognition for its honesty, integrity and friendly service. Strikingly, HCR also takes a data-driven approach that significantly increases efficiency, reduces costs and provides better outcomes for clients.

Edwards said: “This fantastic growth vindicates our decision to launch in a segment that was both saturated yet also crying out for a new approach. We saw the need for a model built entirely around the customer, one that takes a very different approach in order to give insurers exactly what they need and want from legal advisors. HCR Insurance & Risk represents a new generation of legal practice, providing the expertise, service and customer experience the insurance industry deserves.”

HCR Insurance & Risk provides comprehensive support for insurers, brokers and policyholders across a range of industry sectors including education, construction, real estate, leisure and healthcare.
