The Debevoise Global Insurance Practice brings decades of experience to the most complex insurance industry transactions, the highest-stakes disputes and the most challenging regulatory engagements.

The market-leading and multidisciplinary practice won the Chambers USA 2016 Award for Excellence in Insurance and Law360 has named Debevoise Insurance Practice Group of the Year for three consecutive years (2015-2017). The group provides the highest level of capabilities and client service in all markets, and clients in return tell The Legal 500 US that Debevoise is “a top-notch insurance industry practice” that is at the “top of its field.”

The team is consistently the first choice for major insurance industry mergers and acquisitions, intricate financings against an evolving regulatory backdrop, restructurings and a host of other transactions. The deep industry and market knowledge that powers the transactional practice also fuels a world-class disputes practice.

The Debevoise Global Insurance Practice advises a wide range of industry clients, including major:

  • insurers;
  • reinsurers;
  • asset management firms;
  • private equity funds and other capital providers;
  • intermediaries; and
  • significant industry associations.

The group’s broad and collaborative team of lawyers include leading U.S., English and Hong Kong qualified insurance industry practitioners based in New York, London and Hong Kong, as well as U.S. and locally qualified lawyers elsewhere in Europe and Asia. As Chambers USA notes, this global team “[takes] the lead on many of the most complex of deals in the market, including those with significant cross-border or multijurisdictional aspects.”
