Insurance in Asia

Debevoise’s Asia Practice Advises on the Region’s Largest, Most Innovative Deals in the Insurance Sector

The firm has a long history of working with major insurers in Asia, both domestic and international. It has developed a reputation for leading on the market’s most ambitious transactions, regularly working with insurers on matters that grow, reshape or refocus their business, both in Asia and around the world.

As well as transactional advice, the team works closely with clients on regulatory needs, guiding them through key requirements and the ongoing changes to the regulatory landscape in the region. In working alongside colleagues in the firm’s market-leading, global Insurance practice, the team also provides regulatory and enforcement advice to Asian insurance clients as they do business in international markets.

Our Asian Insurance Practice is led by Hong Kong-based partner Edwin Northover, he is recommended by Chambers Asia-Pacific for Insurance: Non-contentious, which has described him as a “very talented lawyer,” “very responsive and pragmatic” and noted his “extensive knowledge of bancassurance arrangements across Asia-Pacific.” The Legal 500 Asia Pacific also recommends him for Mergers & Acquisitions and Insurance, with the guide describing him as a “very good negotiator.” Mr. Northover has worked on several of the most significant insurance M&A transactions in Asia.
