Insurance Regulatory and Compliance

We are a market leader in the provision of legal and regulatory advice to insurers and financial institutions.

We regularly advise regulators and governments, as well as insurers and reinsurers in relation to regulatory issues.  We cover the full range of regulatory matters from authorisation, governance and solvency to engagement with supervisors. In a transactional context, our regulatory experts help manage execution risk associated with complex deals, often involving multiple regulated sectors and jurisdictions.

Our team is heavily engaged in advising in relation to Solvency II and work closely with clients, trade associations and regulators to help shape the regulatory agenda.  Our Regulatory Investigations group advises companies and individuals involved in FSA investigations and enforcement proceedings.
