Neil understands that clients need more than just legal analysis. They need practical solutions that are commercially helpful, especially when their problem stems from an uncertain legal context. Neil delivers clear and direct advice that clients can act on. He advises on a broad range of matters for clients in the insurance sector including insurers and reinsurers, Lloyd's market participants and intermediaries.
As you would expect from a Hogan Lovells lawyer, Neil is frequently involved in projects with multi-jurisdictional elements and has a strong track record implementing solutions that cross borders. Neil has extensive experience advising on Part VII transfers. His practice also covers Solvency II and regulatory compliance, authorisations, mergers and acquisitions, domestic and international reorganisations and corporate governance matters.
