Michael Brown


  • I am a partner with over 30 years' experience, some of which as BLM's management board partner for six years, 2005 – 2011 and senior partner, 2012-2018.
  • I now bring my experience of the business to head the risk and compliance team for BLM throughout the UK and Ireland.
  • In my role as senior partner I was responsible for the strategy, leadership, and development of the business in the insurance and commercial arena. I oversaw the re-engineering, re-structuring and re-branding of the business, as well as the integration with other law firms to create a UK and Ireland practice. I was the driving force for extending BLM’s service offering internationally, with the creation of Global Insurance Law Connect in which BLM was the initial founding member. I have overseen further strategic diversification with the introduction of BLM’s commercial arm, commercial advisory and private wealth, extending the offering to existing clients as well as opportunities to new prospects.


  • I was appointed as a Deputy District Judge in 2005.
  • I won the IoD North West Director of the Year Award 2016.
  • The Law Society of England and Wales
