The insurance attorneys are in high demand in the market in recent years. The demands for insurance attorneys are so high that the professional lawyers are unable to meet the requirements. Competent and well trained lawyers in the insurance market are dolefully insufficient. The attorneys preparing to practice in the field of insurance industry must have sufficient knowledge and skill relating to this field. The lawyer with very narrow and restricted knowledge about the insurance industry tends to lose the interest of the companies on whose behalf they function.

The laws and procedures involved in the field of insurance are very specific. The lawyers are required to spend more time and energy in getting accustomed with the credentials and terminology of the insurance law. Only after the lawyers put in considerable time and effort can they gain expertise in this field. The survey research conducted revealed that the field of insurance law could not attract much attention from the lawyers in comparison to that of banking and security law. These sectors were lucrative in terms of job interest and innovative job opportunities.

The situation today is different. The insurance market today guarantees a huge scope of opportunities for these legal attorneys. There are many foreign investors who are seeking to establish joint venture companies for promoting their own insurance products. The industry requires more competent and professional legal attorneys.

There are many firms that primarily rely on insurance defense work. The term ''insurance defense'' refers to a situation when a person who is insuring hires a council for securing its insured against any action undertaken by a third party on the grounds that the insured has inflicted physical or property damage of the third party. The insurance attorneys working with these firms increase their marketability. Such lawyers are not only better paid, but they also occupy the most prestigious positions in elite law firms. The insurance attorneys, have not only derived high degree of specialization by working in these law firms, but also handled cases of a sophisticated nature under legal insurance coverage. The insurance defense legal jobs enable the attorneys to gather knowledge about the litigation processes.

Cases of conflicts in the legal insurance coverage tasks are something that should be handled with extreme caution and care. The legal firms may represent both policy holders and insurers. These legal firms mostly try to emphasize on picking sides with any party. Going by the legal firm policies, the firms representing policy holders may not hire a lawyer representing insurers. The insurance attorneys in such legal jobs must tailor their job searches accordingly.

An insurance attorney is entrusted with the following responsibilities:
  • An insurance attorney advises the insurance companies on the matters of legal transactions.
  • He analyzes the court proceedings and recommends necessary changes.
  • He sees to it that the insurance policies do not violate the law or company rules.
  • The insurance lawyer also advises personnel of the legal department about the claims filed.
  • He provides professional advice to those who deal with release papers and insurance contracts.
