The sector group has provided advice on the ongoing consolidation in the insurance industry for many years, nationally and internationally. Our lawyers have advised numerous insurers and reinsurers on M&A. We also advise on intra-group restructurings, management and leveraged buy-outs, establishing or terminating joint ventures and pre/post merger processes.
The group's full-service approach enables our interdisciplinary team to provide efficient and comprehensive legal advice on all transaction-related or other business measures. This and our market knowledge and sector know-how are why insurance and reinsurance companies frequently retain Allen & Overy as legal advisors.
The team led by Dr Jan Schröder and Dr Christian Eichner, is regularly involved in innovative transactions including, most recently, run-off transactions in the life and non-life sector and credit portfolio and longevity transactions
