Legal and regulatory advice for the insurance sector

Legal and regulatory know-how is essential for achieving commercial objectives in the global insurance market. We provide this know-how for insurers, reinsurers, intermediaries and insureds, advising in relation to the full range of insurance market activities and issues. This includes:

  • the development of insurance products, services and operations, such as setting up live and run-off market businesses
  • negotiating contractual terms with suppliers, distributors and advisers
  • buying, selling and transferring insurance businesses or books
  • compliance with regulatory rules, maintaining effective relationships with regulators, and managing or mitigating the risks of rule breaches or regulatory relationship breakdown, through investigations and reports
  • litigation and arbitration, including defence and coverage cases and commercial disputes.

In line with the language of risk management and regulation found in Solvency II, we focus on helping our clients prevent or mitigate the effects of unexpected adverse outcomes such as financial loss, regulatory sanction or other commercial detriment.

We have developed operating systems within our network of international offices and correspondent firms that enable us to produce rapid and comprehensive compliance and legal risk management reports, to enable cross-border insurance business to be developed with optimum commercial effectiveness.

Our insurance team won the Legal Business Award for Insurance Team of the Year 2017 for our 'crucial' work advising the Association of British Insurers on Flood Re.
