Our team

The Insurance sector group’s core team members are lawyers from Allen & Overy’s Corporate Insurance Practice. We have long-standing experience in corporate and regulatory issues related to transactions, reorganisation measures, investments and other sector-specific matters.

In addition, we have experts in capital markets, antitrust, tax and employment law with specific sector expertise. We co-operate frequently with the competent regulatory authorities, enabling us to ensure adequate solutions in transactions and other regulatory issues.

Our focus

The interdisciplinary Insurance sector group advises on transactions and reorganisation measures of national and international insurance groups as well as insurance mediation and distribution issues. We provide product-specific advice and we support insurance and reinsurance companies in Germany and abroad.  Our advice covers establishment of business activities for compliance and risk management matters, group and corporate law issues and insurance-specific dispute resolution.
Commercially sound solutions come from in-depth industry sector knowledge. Our Insurance sector group guarantees innovative and creative solutions that enhance the competitiveness of domestic and international insurance and reinsurance companies. The team is led by Dr Jan Schröder, Dr Christian Eichner and Frank Herring and is considered an "unrivalled centre of competence that is second to no one when advising in the insurance sector" (Juve Handbook 2011/2012).
