’It has been a group objective to have a physical presence and office in such a key geographical area,’ says chief executive

Brunel Insurance Brokers has acquired the renewal rights to Framlingham-based firm Liability and General Insurance Brokers (L&G).

The move forms part of Brunel’s expansion plans in the UK, with the broker also revealing that it will open a new office in East Anglia alongside the purchase.

It is currently recruiting for various positions, including account handlers, account brokers and account executives. 

Brunel said the expansion reflected its ”commitment to addressing the needs of businesses in the region” and providing them with solutions.

This includes employee benefits, wealth management and a mid to high net worth offering.

”The alignment between L&G and Brunel as true independent brokers makes this acquisition a natural fit for us,” Russell Lane, chief executive of Brunel, said. 

”It has also been a group objective to have a physical presence and office in such a key geographical area. We are committed to investing heavily in the region and expanding our team to better serve our clients.”


L&G offers tailored insurance and risk management advice and operates in a range of sectors, such as construction, haulage and transportation, pubs, restaurants and clubs, gyms and fitness centres.

“I have ran a successful business for 10 years and the decision to sell was driven by the opportunity for support and investment from a true independent broker like Brunel,” David Mangan, managing director of L&G, said.

”I am excited about the next chapter with Brunel and living locally know exactly what is required to deliver a market leading proposition.

“[I am] confident that together, we will build one of the largest brokers for the region.”
