Insurance & Reinsurance

Our Insurance & Reinsurance Department serves national and global leaders in insurance and reinsurance, as well as brokers, with a product roster including general insurance, annuity, life and surety bonds, and policies linked to financial loans and services. We have experience serving all industries and understand the particular circumstances faced by clients in sectors ranging from the manufacturing sector to natural resources and energy to professional services, to name but a few.

We provide comprehensive advice on the formation and sale of insurance companies, the transfer, and sale of customer portfolios, corporate issues, regulatory matters, and visits, product approvals, marketing agreements and agreements with reinsurers. In what is a tightly regulated market, our team develops targeted client strategies to provide alternatives to add value to their insurance business.

Our experts represent clients in insurance-related legal proceedings and advise on litigation strategies including class actions. We advise on pre-judicial and judicial matters, both at the national and international levels. We also manage large claims handling and reports.

We advise on regulatory issues at the national and provincial levels, as well as for cross-border deals, and assist global clients on their market entry strategies, either through acquisitions or the direct establishment of a local subsidiary, including corporate registrations. Our network of relationships with correspondents throughout the country ensures clients’ regional operations are well-served.
