Hesketh Henry authors Insurance Practical Guidance

By invitation, Hesketh Henry’s insurance team has written a new on-line insurance law publication for LexisNexis, known as “Insurance Practical Guidance”.

The on-line publication provides a straightforward and pragmatic guide to all aspects of insurance law in New Zealand, together with practical tools such as checklists, flowcharts, helpful hints and reference sources.  As an everyday resource for understanding insurance law concepts and carrying out essential research, the publication is tailored to the needs of all insurance professionals, and not just specialist lawyers advising in this area. 

This is the first online insurance product of its kind in New Zealand and the first insurance module globally in LexisNexis’ Practical Guidance suite.  

Hesketh Henry’s authorship reflects the depth of our knowledge and expertise in this area and our commitment to supporting the insurance sector.
