The LCSG of the IUAI comprises leading legal and claims practitioners from the aerospace insurance and reinsurance industry. The group meets on a regular basis to discuss relevant legal and claims related issues currently facing the aerospace sector. Through the vast experience of its members, representing various geographical regions and specialities, the group identifies developing claims trends and legal issues, and also provides practical feedback from their everyday involvement in the handling of aerospace claims.

The group includes a Legal Advisor who helps to ensure that the IUAI operates within the appropriate legal and governance frameworks and who also produces a quarterly legal update to all members highlighting recent legal developments of relevance to aerospace insurers and reinsurers.
