The article focuses on a competition case in which aviation insurers Barlow Lyde & Gilbert (BLG) and DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary secured success for the London aviation insurance market. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, insurers worked together to raise rates and reduce cover. In this respect, BLG partner David Strang, acting for the Lloyd's Market Association (LMA) and Alexandra Kamerling of DLA Piper, representing the International Underwriting Association of London, led lengthy talks with the European Commission, which settled on March 23, 2005.
