Nassau Re and Locke Lord LLP announce a strategic partnership whereby Locke Lord will provide legal and strategic support to Nassau Re’s insurtech incubator, Nassau Re/Imagine.
In this role, Locke Lord, a full-service law firm with global reach and nearly 90 attorneys and professionals focused on the insurance and reinsurance industries across all lines of insurance, will assist the Nassau Re/Imagine startups navigate complex and sometimes archaic insurance regulations, work through their capital raising process, and find cost-efficient ways to protect their intellectual property. Brian Casey, Co-Chair of the firm’s Regulatory and Transactional Insurance Group, noted, “Our new relationship with Nassau Re/Imagine is very important to serving both our incumbent insurance and reinsurance clients as well as our more pure-play insurance technology clients.”
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Locke Lord as our legal partner” said Paul Tyler, Chief Marketing Officer of Nassau Re. “Very few law firms, especially those with local offices here in Hartford, have the type of in-depth expertise and business solutions-oriented approach across the full spectrum of needs facing the insurtech startups that will flow through Nassau Re/Imagine.
Nassau Re/Imagine is based in Nassau Re’s iconic Boat Building headquarters in Hartford, Connecticut. It supports selected startups focused in the life insurance, annuity and reinsurance industries with complimentary office space and business development services.
“We believe Nassau Re/Imagine will be a shining example for collaboration among innovators, traditional insurer/reinsurers and the greater Hartford community, and we couldn’t be happier to continue our long standing relationship with Nassau Re through this partnership” said Casey.
