Bond Dickinson has won Insurance Team of the Year at the Legal Business Awards last night (23 March), at a gala ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London.

With more than 100 finalists across 24 categories, the awards recognised the achievements of the finest lawyers in the industry. The winners were selected by an external judging panel comprising senior general counsel and senior editors from Legal Business' editorial team.
