Robert Chaplin focuses primarily on transactional and advisory work in the insurance sector.
Mr. Chaplin advises on international and domestic mergers, acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and strategic reinsurances. He has extensive experience in transactions involving financial sponsors and their in-house (re)insurers, portfolio companies and other private capital-owned vehicles. His clients include a diverse range of multinational, U.K., European and Bermudian insurers, reinsurers, brokers and intermediaries, including well-known participants in both the Lloyd’s and London Market. Mr. Chaplin also counsels on emerging and long-standing regulatory issues and developments in the sector (with a particular emphasis on prudential matters, including Solvency II), schemes, restructurings and reorganizations, capital-raisings, life and non-life portfolio transfers, longevity transactions, and distribution and other material commercial agreements. In addition to his extensive transactional and advisory insurance practice, Mr. Chaplin works closely with Skadden’s international litigation and arbitration practitioners in London and around the world in advising insurers, reinsurers and other market players on complex, high-stakes reinsurance disputes.
