Insurance Advisory for Corporates

We understand the unique characteristics of the insurance industry and the challenges of completing a transaction in an increasingly onerous regulatory environment. Our depth of experience in this sector enables us to anticipate the challenges and guide our clients through to a successful outcome.


Our extensive industry experience enables us to identify solutions and provide relevant, pragmatic advice to get the deal done.

We can advise on the most effective way to achieve your commercial objectives, whether through share or asset purchase, purchase of renewal rights, or Part VII transfer. We also advise on associated regulatory change in control applications and the authorisation of new regulated businesses, as well as due diligence and warranty protection in the context of a business in this sector.

Our insurance advisory team advises on:

  • Mergers & acquisitions, including MBOs
  • Asset acquisitions
  • Part VII transfers
  • Capital raising and restructuring
  • Joint ventures, strategic investments, shareholders’ agreements and other co-investment arrangements
  • Group reorganisations and restructurings
  • IPOs and other securities offers
  • Public takeovers and advice on the UK Takeover Code
  • Run-off, reinsurance, and other exit solutions
