About

Provided by Taylor Wessing

Insurance markets around the world are facing a number of challenges. This includes increasing regulation, the availability of alternative capital, online broking, longevity, cyber risks, and commoditisation. Market developments such as insurance linked securities, new products and more sophisticated coverage offer innovative solutions. Inevitably, as the market develops and new products are created, claims and litigation tend to follow.

Our international insurance group is drawn from experts in their fields and are based across the world’s major insurance centres. Our core clients include international (re)insurers, Lloyd’s syndicates and advisers, brokers and intermediaries, run-off agents and other key market participants.

We can provide you with a team that has extensive, in-depth knowledge of the commercial insurance and reinsurance markets globally, and also offer specialists in insurance mediation and international reinsurance law.

You can rely on a team with a strong market focus that has recognised expertise in insurance acquisitions and transfers, new structures and alternative capital arrangements, claims and disputes, policy wordings, reinsurance contracts including compliance, and regulatory issues.
