  • The establishment and licensing of life and non-life insurers and reinsurers, captives, intermediaries, segregated portfolio companies and on the development of various insurance products.
  • Financing and collateral arrangements involving such insurance undertakings together with alternative capital solutions.
  • Mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and portfolio transfers, compliance and corporate governance, run-offs and winding-ups.
  • General advisory and other regulatory work including advice in relation to Solvency II.
  • Alternative risk transfer structures, including captives, cash and synthetic catastrophe bonds, sidecars, transformers, life settlement transactions and structured product transactions.
