  • all aspects of the regulatory environment affecting insurers and reinsurers, including solvency requirements, compliance obligations and product offerings;
  • distribution of insurance products, bancassurance and related regulatory issues;
  • advising corporate buyers of insurance in relation to policy wording and operational insurance issues, as well as the use of insurance to address risks that arise in corporate transactions;
  • insurance portfolio transfers by means of court schemes;
  • advising companies, directors and officers regarding all aspects of executive risk mitigation, including director and officer (D&O) insurance and corporate indemnification; and
