Membership of FOIL is open to solicitors who practice in the field of insurance law and whose practice comprises predominantly or exclusively of insurance clients (except legal expenses insurers) either practising within firms of solicitors or as in- house lawyers for such insurers or for self-insurers.
As a FOIL member you will be at the forefront of debate with insurers, Government and other interested parties in promoting common-sense changes and improvements to industry practices and processes. FOIL ensures defendant insurance lawyers have a front seat in every forum.
FOIL is committed to driving the kind of change which achieves an accessible and effective dispute resolution environment, where long-term needs and right outcomes for claimants hold sway over time-wasting activity, to the greater benefit of all concerned – insurers and claimants alike.
FOIL is recognised as the fulcrum of opinion for defendant insurance lawyers and as such FOIL’s opinion is sought for all relevant reviews and enquiries. As a member your views will be heard.
FOIL actively liaises with the ABI and Insurers, the Law Societies of England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (FOIL has its own representative on the Council of the Law Society of England and Wales), the Bar Council and other relevant bodies in the exchange and promotion of expertise and efficiency in the field of insurance law.
