6 April 2018

Members of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP’s Insurance Practice Group recently authored the Insurance and Investment Management M&A Deskbook published by the Practising Law Institute, 2018. The book, edited by partner Marilyn A. Lion, is an extensive guide, covering a wide range of matters related to insurance and investment management M&A, such as structuring, due diligence and regulatory issues. It also includes information on U.S. tax reform as applied to the insurance industry.
