Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) has appointed BUREN China Practice as part of GILC (Global Insurance Law Connect), to its new legal Asia Pacific (APAC) claims panel to provide advice on the management of large and complex claims in China. The panel, which took effect on March 1, 2021, has been implemented to ensure greater transparency and consistency of legal services for claims in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Singapore.
