Leading top tier international law firm are looking to hire a Corporate Insurance lawyer to be based in their offices in either London or Edinburgh. 
Role Profile:
The Corporate Insurance team is an integral part of our genuinely full service insurance practice which boasts over 50 lawyers. The Insurance sector client base includes each of the top 10 UK general insurers and 6 of the top 10 UK life insurers.  The team advises life insurers, general insurers, and reinsurers on a broad range of matters but with a particular 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. 


The team forms part of an international corporate group which comprises some 120 lawyers, including more than 35 partners. The corporate practice is acknowledged leader with, for example, Tier 1 rankings for both mid-market M&A and private equity transactions.

The successful candidate will ideally have gained experience in a City firm or a large regional practice.  


Candidate Requirements:


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.
