The highly-rated insurance team has a wealth of expertise in handling a broad range of insurance disputes. We also offer advice from a commercial and legal perspective on specific aspects of the insurance industry, which includes the interpretation and drafting of commercial policies.
In addition, our expertise also covers restructuring of regulatory capital, strategic reinsurance, longevity transactions, M&A and regulatory matters.
On the insurance industry side, we have dedicated ourselves to helping corporate policyholders in insurance and reinsurance disputes by successfully representing insurance companies and brokers in commercial litigation involving employment discrimination, contract, and antitrust disputes. By focusing our litigation practice on different substantive areas for policyholders than for insurers, we are able to represent clients of both types while bringing to bear our unique appreciation for the dynamics of the insurance industry.
Our insurance coverage practice is unique in its trial focus. We identify the most significant issues upfront and focus on developing the facts and law into a clear, persuasive narrative manner. We have always had deep-rooted experience in disputes involving complex, transactional and corporate issues, and underlying liabilities of all types. This experience is what gives us the advantage in helping our clients tackle efficiently and effectively their most complex insurance and reinsurance challenges.
We also advise insurers and investment banks on regulatory capital and liquidity transactions. In addition to advising financial institutions, multinational companies and government bodies, a number of our team have also spent time in the industry as insurance regulators or as underwriters. Our team has the specialist product knowledge you would expect of a market-leading insurance team, coupled with a well-rounded view of the sector to provide our clients with commercially relevant advice in the most efficient manner.
Our combination of courtroom advocacy and the aforementioned experience is second to none. We pursue our clients’ rights aggressively and develop efficient, creative approaches to litigation.
