Who Is The Lion Partnership?

The Lion Partnership is a privately owned, specialist consultancy group that is committed to delivering the best possible insurance solutions for our clients.

Company Profile

The Lion Partnership has created a truly autonomous advisory service to support businesses through the complex and often costly exercise of implementing efficient insurance programs.

Established in Melbourne in 2009, our unique 'value-add' service proposition coupled with our success in working with some of Australia’s largest and most well-known organisations enabled us to grow organically and expand our operations into New Zealand in January of 2010.

We have also formed close working partnerships over the years with a number of other expert advisors throughout Australasia which enable us to deliver further specialist support and benefits to our clients.

This continual growth and expansion of our unique consultancy practice is testament to both our professionalism and our ability to consistently deliver outstanding outcomes for our clients.

Critical to our success has also been our ability to foster strong working relationships with leading insurance brokers and providers in the market – relationships that have developed over the past 10 years by virtue of our open and transparent approach.

Ultimately, as an independent firm, our job is to help our clients secure the best deal in the market for them, no matter their size, profession or industry.

Our intimate understanding of the insurance market, together with our years of experience in working with organisations across multiple industries and disciplines means we are well equipped to help any organisation that is looking to optimise their insurance arrangements.

For us, being independent is key. We do not act as a broker and we do not sell insurance. We are a specialist consultancy offering impartial, objective and unbiased advice.

We consider this independence as one of the most important and beneficial features of our service proposition, as it adds to our ability to act in the best interests of our clients at all times.
