Our experienced interdisciplinary insurance team offers deep knowledge and understanding of the worldwide reinsurance industry and is able to address virtually any legal issue affecting the industry. Whether our client is an insurer, reinsurer, intermediary, financial institution or governmental entity, we have a wealth of experience in all aspects of reinsurance and across all lines of business, including property-casualty, specialty, marine, finite/alternative risk transfer and life and health reinsurance.
Our dedicated team of lawyers handles issues that often require complex legal advice on transactional and dispute resolution sides.
As an example, we have advised clients on the design of incoming and outgoing reinsurance programs, as well as the resolution of blocks of business through reinsurance transactions. We also draft and negotiate affiliate and material agreements for our insurance clients, and, where necessary, assist with regulatory filings and approvals.
Our areas of work include agreements between insurers and their affiliates (such as cost-sharing, tax allocation, reinsurance and pooling agreements), as well as extraordinary dividends, surplus note and other financing transactions, and distribution agreements of various types (agency, MGA/MGU and others).
