What Law Firm is Doing ICBC’s Work

The document shows how much ICBC is paying various companies or individuals such as their defence lawyers each year

Each year ICBC releases financial information including the amount they pay their defence lawyer.  Basically, that document shows how much ICBC is paying various companies or individuals such as their defence lawyers each year.

The numbers underestimate the amount of defence work a particular law firm does because the numbers do not include work for other insurance companies.  Therefore, when you look at the below chart, the numbers represent the minimum amount of defence work that a particular law firm does in any one year (up to 2017-2018):

Overall, if you are planning on hiring a lawyer and you find out he/she works for one of the big ICBC defence firms noted above, you will really have to think about whether or not you want a defense lawyer to work for you against ICBC.

Mussio Goodman proudly dose not work for ICBC, therefore, there is no risk of our lawyers trying to maintain relations with ICBC by not fighting.
