Insurance is one of the most complex and highly regulated businesses in the financial world.

Extensive and ever-changing regulation in many jurisdictions has resulted in a significant requirement for sophisticated regulatory advice on contentious and non-contentious matters.

The global financial crisis has presented insurers with further challenges, bringing a considerable increase in regulatory, governance, solvency and capital requirements.

Access to in-depth expertise at both a local and international level is therefore vital. Hogan Lovells has one of the world's leading insurance practices in the world advising on regulation, transactions, dispute resolution, financing and commercial matters in the insurance and reinsurance industry. With more than 220 lawyers worldwide with in-depth knowledge of the insurance industry working throughout our international network in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and USA, we are one of a few insurance practices that can offer a truly global perspective on the market.
 
During the last decade, we have advised well over 100 insurance and reinsurance groups across the full range of legal issues faced by insurers. Our dedicated sector-focused teams are immersed in the industry, enabling us to keep our clients up to speed with looming legislative and regulatory changes. Our extensive client base also ensures that there are very few issues we have not come across before.

The status of the practice has been recognised by a number of legal directories and is validated by our extensive network of clients. We have also recently enhanced our US insurance practice and we believe that its quality and resources are a match for the leading insurance practices in the US.

Our practice covers the whole market, including life and non-life insurance companies, friendly societies, intermediaries and other market professionals.

As from 1 April 2013, Hogan Lovells International LLP was appointed to the Skilled Person Panel in the following areas: Governance, Conduct of Business and Financial Crime.  Please click the FCA and PRA websites to see the Panel in full.
