Corporate Insurance Lawyer - 3 yrs PQE


Salary Dependant on Experience

My client is in the top 30 largest law firms in the world, they can boast more Legal 500 Tier 1 rankings than any other firms and have won numerous awards such as Law firm of the Year. They are currently looking to expand their corporate team by bringing in a Corporate Insurance Lawyer.

The Candidate Required

The successful candidate will ideally have gained experience in a City firm or a large regional practice. Candidates must be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. They will be a team player with a strong client focussed approach. They will also have a strong academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills.

Background to the Corporate Insurance Team

Our Corporate Insurance team is an integral part of our genuinely full-service insurance practice which boasts over 50 lawyers. Our insurance sector client base includes each of the top 10 UK general insurers and 6 of the top 10 UK life insurers. We have numerous legal directory rankings for our insurance offering.

Our Corporate Insurance team currently comprises 10 dedicated lawyers. The team advises life insurers, general insurers, and reinsurers on a broad range of matters but with a focus on:

  • M&A
  • Reorganisations
  • Part VII transfers, both domestic and cross-border
  • Reinsurance
  • Regulatory matters
  • Other risk transfer mechanisms
  • With-profits issues
  • Solvency II

In addition to the above, successful candidates will have an opportunity to work on commercial matters such as product develop and distribution arrangements. The team also advises other financial institutions like retail banks, private banks, intermediaries, brokers and asset managers on a broad range of transactional matters.

The team has had significant success winning instructions on complex strategic transactions (including reorganisations prompted by Brexit). They most regularly compete for work against the magic and silver circle firms.
