Willkie’s insurance and reinsurance practice group is an interdisciplinary team of lawyers with significant experience in insurance and reinsurance transactions, regulation, and litigation. In addition to leading U.S. and European lawyers with insurance industry experience, our practice group includes highly sophisticated lawyers with substantial experience in corporate, litigation, tax and other practice areas.
Our clients include domestic and international insurance and reinsurance companies, insurance brokers, policyholders, private equity firms, hedge funds, and other insurance industry investors. We represent clients in high-profile mergers and acquisitions, public and private securities transactions, institutional private placements, financings, and joint ventures. Our experienced lawyers also handle insurance-specific financial transactions, including bulk reinsurance arrangements, group restructurings, demutualizations, renewal rights transactions, and commutations. We routinely advise clients on licensing, investments, permissible activities, and solvency matters, and we represent clients before insurance regulators in the United States and internationally.
