About Us

We have the personnel, drive, and sophistication to help clients achieve their commercial goals worldwide no matter how complex the risk.

Our Background

Brockwell was founded with a view to building a market-leading specialty insurance provider that brings together the most experienced M&A and transactional insurance professionals.

The founders began by offering W&I insurance with risk capital provided by the prestigious Lloyd’s of London insurance market. Although we started trading in December 2017, the team’s experience providing W&I and Tax insurance solutions dates back to 2004 and we have more than 50 years of combined transactional insurance experience.

Our Team has grown since 2017 and now boasts specialist underwriters with experience from working at leading international law firms, the Big 4, FTSE 100 companies, insurance companies, and insurance brokerages. We can currently offer W&I, Tax, and Contingent insurance up to a financial limit of £45m (or equivalent).

We are structured as a managing general agent and Lloyd’s coverholder, which means that we enter insurance policies on behalf of our Risk Capital providers who are insurance companies. This structure allows us to offer clients the best features of a large insurance company – experience, global reach, large policy limits, and credit rating – with the agility and flexibility of a smaller business.

Brockwell is a coverholder at Lloyds

Brockwell is the first managing general agent to be granted 9000 series cover holder status at Lloyd’s of London – we are registered with consortium numbers 9764 (UK and Rest of World) and 9234 (EEA). This means we are embedded in the international Lloyd’s insurance market and improves our ability to arrange insurance within short timeframes and streamlines the Claims process.


Why choose Brockwell?

We’re passionate about efficiently solving problems with clear communication.

A Team Of Experts

We offer certainty of execution. Our Team of transactional insurance experts has more than 75 years of combined transactional insurance experience and have deployed £billions of risk capital to help clients mitigate risk across a wide range of risks types, jurisdictions, and sectors. The team includes insurance, legal, tax, accounting, and economics professionals which allows us to understand and cover a broad range of risks. See our Case Studies for more information.

A Premium Service

A transactional insurance partner is providing a professional service for clients and that service needs to be excellent. Brockwell provides clients with a premium service by being proactive, agile, reliable, and responsive with the ability to meet exceptionally challenging deadlines. Each project is assigned a senior underwriter as a principle point of contact to ensure rapid decision-making and certainty of execution. And afterwards your senior underwriter will assist with the Claims process.

A+ Risk Capital

Meaningful insurance has to be backed by solid risk capital. Brockwell’s risk capital providers are set out at Risk Capital. Our Lloyd’s risk capital is rated A+ by S&P and benefits from the “central fund” which means that if a Lloyd’s insurer is unable to meet its financial obligations under a policy then Lloyd’s can meet them instead.


Our clients operate internationally and so do we. We support our clients through a global network of top-tier advisers who have deep sector knowledge and are experts in advising insurers and insured persons regarding the products that we offer. We will consider (and have experience with) a much broader range of jurisdictions than other insurance providers, which means we can offer clients a consistent global insurance partner.
