Insurance

Assessing and mitigating risk

The insurance industry is subject to major scrutiny and regulatory reform. 

Our experts work with insurers, brokers and policyholders to take advantage of this complexity by combining knowledge of legal and regulatory reforms with changing customer expectation, technology advancements and the evolution of product offerings such as cyber insurance. 

Much like the industry itself, we help clients assess and mitigate risk, often becoming an extension of our clients’ in-house legal teams. We advise on high-profile and complex M&A transactions, insurance business transfers, corporate restructurings, capital raisings, advisory work, drafting policy wordings, distribution arrangements, regulatory and outsourcing matters.

We take care to develop a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and their key drivers in order to provide advice that is commercially relevant and strategic. Members of our team have experience working in the industry and at regulators, meaning we are well-placed to share an in-depth industry knowledge.

Our practice also has an outstanding reputation in complex, high-profile insurance and reinsurance disputes and advises clients on a range of matters including major claims, resolving coverage disputes, and handling contentious regulator and insolvency matters.
