Insurance

Our insurance group draws on both the legal and industry knowledge of a global and cross-practice team of lawyers who can support your business in any stage of development or challenge.

Change is happening faster than ever in the insurance sector, and we can help you stay ahead. Digitalization, the increased threat of cyberattacks, ever-changing regulation, and the wave of new market entrants all provide risks and opportunities alike. We take a proactive and holistic approach with our clients, drawing upon our 30+ years at the forefront of the sector.

Whether you are a life or non-life insurer; primary insurer, reinsurer, or intermediary; PLC, mutual society or public insurer, we have the whole market covered – whatever the opportunity or challenge.

We advise our clients on the broadest range of issues: from helping them to reshape their business, to stimulating growth and taking advantage of consolidation in the insurance market through M&A opportunities; acting for them in litigation and arbitration; and assisting them with regulatory investigations and sanctions advice. Our global team of more than 250 lawyers can support you wherever you are in your life cycle, in good times and bad, and wherever you are located.

With the burden of compliance continuing to increase along with the speed of regulatory developments, our clients particularly value the unique regulatory insight we can give, shaped by our strong working relationships with government bodies across the world.
