    The exercise of seeking to determine what the best interests are of an individual involves a careful balance between the principle of personal autonomy and the presumption in favour of preserving life. No easy task.

    We are thrilled to announce that we have published a significantly updated edition of our guide to claims handling, which helps empower insurers, third party administrators, corporates and their claims teams to become less reliant on their lawyers.
