Welcome to the launch issue of InView, Weightmans’ new magazine providing analysis and insight for insurance industry leaders.

Welcome to the launch issue of InView, Weightmans’ new magazine providing analysis and insight for insurance industry leaders.

In putting together this first issue, I would particularly like to thank Rob Cummings, Manager of General Insurance at the Association of British Insurers, for his thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. Our aim has been to produce a high quality magazine with a broad spread of articles and commentary.

One of our main features highlights the work still to do in addressing the shortfall of women taking senior roles in both the legal and insurance sectors. Thanks to Elaine Chapman and Alison Littley for providing their thoughts on the way forward.

Also in this issue, Adrian Le Monnier and David Ingleson explain how fraudsters are broadening their horizons beyond the motor marketplace, Ling Ong focuses on reinsurance disputes, Euros Jones and Kurt Rowe assess the impact of the Financial Conduct Authority and Rob Williams takes a look at a turbulent time in the courts for airlines.

In other articles, Mike Grant asks whether compulsory mediation is on the horizon, Mark Landon examines the legal challenges faced by senior management and Dan Cutts talks about importance of law firms listening, learning and implementing positive change. Our Market Watch feature also provides an update on the latest legislative developments.

We hope that the content, style and design of the magazine makes for an informative read and would welcome your feedback on our first issue. All our authors have been asked to steer clear of legal jargon. We leave you to judge whether they have been successful!
