Sub practice

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
