Insurance

When our insurance clients launch new initiatives, make acquisitions, or face market pressures, class action litigation or regulatory challenges, they turn to us as their trusted adviser. We are dedicated to helping our insurance clients thrive in an ever-changing regulatory and business environment.

Our insurance group is recognised as a leader in the field, bringing a long track record of optimized outcomes for insurance clients that few law firms can match. Immersed in insurance and reinsurance, Eversheds Sutherland offers clients a collaborative and integrated approach to legal services. Whether pursuing new opportunities or managing crises, we work alongside our clients to find innovative, business-oriented solutions and deliver the highest-quality service.

Our work covers public and private M&A, portfolio transfers, public and private finance, restructurings, disputes, regulatory compliance and enforcement, new product development, tax, reinsurance and captive insurance matters, making us a trusted adviser when insurers look to strategically transform their business and when dealing with essential operations and business as usual transactions. Our regulatory lawyers help guide senior management and compliance officers through complex rules and difficult situations. Our litigators are well-versed in the language and economics of insurance and reinsurance and represent insurance clients in disputes in multiple jurisdictions and in every context – mediation, arbitration, court and administrative proceedings. Eversheds Sutherland, through its global insurance practice, represents many of the largest insurers around the world.

Why Eversheds Sutherland?

Industry know-how. Decades of experience and a diverse client base in the insurance sector enable us to quickly grasp our clients’ needs and identify issues and opportunities that otherwise might not be apparent. From this knowledge base we fashion creative and practical solutions to complex challenges.

Business acumen. Our practice is built on a close understanding of our clients’ products, distribution channels, accounting and competition. In addition to M&A, we apply this knowledge in the development, design, marketing and distribution of new life and property/casualty insurance products, captive insurance and other alternative risk management and financing mechanisms and reinsurance.

Breadth and depth. Our intimate knowledge of the regulatory, securities, tax and finance issues at all levels of the insurance business—from capital financing to products—positions us to provide comprehensive services in complex deals and efficient and effective advocacy in litigation.

Recognition. We are recognized in Legal 500, Chambers, Euromoney Expert Guide and Super Lawyers directories for our insurance experience, and won the Legal Business “Insurance Team of the Year” award in 2016. Many of our Insurance Group lawyers have received individual rankings and distinguished service accolades for their work. But the recognition we care most about is from clients, and the lifeblood of our practice is new assignments from our existing and returning clients.

Whether you are considering a major restructuring, looking for capital, launching a new product, or defending yourself in critical litigation, Eversheds Sutherland has the business acumen and legal experience to navigate any challenge.
