EC3legal about us

EC3 Legal are a Boutique Insurance Law Firm

In this new connected era, nothing is the same, including legal services. We set out in 2012 with the single aim of delivering deep levels of traditional professional legal expertise but with entirely modern thinking. With the insurance industry as our heartland, our 200+ clients comprise insurers, Lloyd’s agencies, brokers, intermediaries, MGAs and industry trade bodies who recognise us as the “go to firm”. We have an enviable pool of legal knowledge and led by David Coupe with Partners Helena Coates, Ian D'Castro, Gavin Coull and Matthew White, we have a reputation for being approachable, straightforward and always commercially minded.

David Coupe and EC3 Legal are a member of the MGAA Legal, regulatory and Compliance Committee and we provide strategic guidance and recommendations to the Board of Directors on the Association’s communication with regulatory authorities, law makers and government.

"The simple fact is that lawyers don’t see clients as the focus of their practice. Our philosophy puts the client at the heart of everything we do - from the creation of the business through all aspects of its growth and development - they are at the core."
David Coupe, Senior Partner.

Providing commercial advice tailored to your businesses needs we are your strategic partner - we understand your challenges and will work with you to achieve your business goals and ambition. With specialist, in-depth insurance sector experience, where market knowledge is vital in understanding issues, you will find our advice practical and appropriate even in the most demanding or complex of legal situations.

We sit on market committees, work with trade associations, regulators and professional bodies always committed to working with them to resolve the key issues facing the industry as a whole. We have received a number of awards in recognition of our contribution to the profession as a leading legal advisor.

Simply put, we are there for you to “get the job done”.
