Global Insurance Practice
14 February 2014
With more than 220 lawyers worldwide dedicated to advising the insurance industry, we have an outstanding reputation for cross-border work. We are one of a few insurance practices that can offer a truly global perspective on the market, with insurance lawyers in Amsterdam, Baltimore, Beijing, Budapest, Caracas, Dubai, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Los Angeles, London, Madrid, Miami, Milan, Moscow, Munich, New York, Paris, Philadelphia, Prague, Rome, San Francisco, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Warsaw, Washington D.C. and Zagreb.
As you will see from the spread and quality of work highlights in this brochure, we cover substantial corporate, regulatory, dispute and insolvency matters in the insurance industry in the UK, Continental Europe, the US and Asia, which we believe gives us a practice which few, if any, other firms can match.
We are often approached to advise on pioneering projects that require innovative solutions. We have advised on several market 'firsts' and are leading the way in specialist areas. These include Part VII transfers, longevity risk transactions, Solvency II and regulatory capital.
While the insurance industry is one of our strengths, we are not a niche insurance firm; we are a full service firm with leading practitioners in all other relevant practice areas (such as competition, employment, finance, insolvency, IP/IT, sanctions/anti-money laundering and tax).
During the last decade, we have advised well over 100 insurance and reinsurance groups. We also advise banks, brokers and other intermediaries as well as investor groups and others engaged in financing the industry. Our broad client base ensures that there are very few issues we have not come across before.
