Brian Martin Recognized as a Leading Insurance and Reinsurance Lawyer

May 1, 2006

Brian Martin, partner in Thompson Coe’s Houston office, is recognized as a pre-eminent insurance and reinsurance practitioner in the 6th edition of the Guide to the World’s Leading Insurance & Reinsurance Lawyers.  Mr. Martin’s recognition results from the distribution by Legal Media Group of 4000 questionnaires to senior in-house counsel, partners at leading law firms, and other specialists in over 60 jurisdictions and peers.

Researchers, who worked for over 18 months on the resulting nominations, then interviewed specialists in major commercial centers, including Brussels, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo, and Washington.  To appear in the guide, Mr. Martin had to meet a strict threshold of nominations from his peers after analysis and screening for firm, formal network, group or alliance bias.  In addition to an extensive mailing list, the Guide will be distributed to delegates at the:

  • Inter-Pacific Bar Association, annual meeting: April/May 2006, Sydney.
  • Association of Corporate Counsel Europe, annual meeting: May 2006, Athens.
  • International Bar Association, annual meeting: September 2006, Chicago.
  • International Bar Association annual Corporate Counsel Conference: 2007 (venue to be decided).
