Insurance Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

We combine cutting edge insurance expertise with a premier corporate/M&A practice

Financial institutions, including insurers, are at the heart of our practice.  We routinely advise leading insurance and reinsurance clients on their strategic M&A transactions as well as structural reorganisations; including the divestment and purchase of life operations and policy portfolio transfers via schemes of arrangement.

We are regularly involved in arrangements for the purchase of large books of life policies in run-off, including the regulatory and asset management aspects. The group has also advised on precedent-setting pension scheme liability transfer transactions.
