Daniel Wilm - Hengeler Mueller

Within: Advice to insurers

Hengeler Mueller’s multi-faceted offering includes assistance with regulatory, corporate and insurance supervisory law matters but the team also covers transactions, which are frequently handled in co-operation with its antitrust team in Brussels. Daniel Wilm led the team’s advice to AXA on the reorganisation of Roland Rechtsschutzversicherung’s shareholder structure, acted for Assicurazioni Generali in proceedings following the squeeze-out of Generali Deutschland, and advised a German insurance group on the sale of a life insurance company in the course of a bidding process. Highlights on the corporate side included Jochen Vetter assisting with the restructuring of a German insurance company to facilitate the expansion of its offering to include non-insurance services, while, in Brexit-related work, the practice advised an English life insurance provider on the transfer of its German branch’s business to an Irish company under a Part VII Transfer. Hannover Rück, Swiss Life and Talanx, including the majority shareholder and parent company HDI, are other key clients.
