James Mee - RPC

Within: Insurance: corporate and regulatory

RPC's transactional insurance practice has had its busiest year ever, advising on a raft of M&A deals, Brexit restructurings, Part VII transfers and Lloyd's of London matters. The team also advises on broker and Managing General Agent Mandates, as well as an increasing volume of legacy business Part VIIs. The transactional and advisory insurance business is headed up by 'real standout' James Mee, who leads on almost all of the firm's insurance M&A mandates, working in tandem with the 'phenomenal' David Wallis. Major matters for the team have included advising RSA on its Brexit-related European business reorganisation.

  • Cancelling insurance: insolvency and downgrade clauses

    One of the most common concerns for both parties to an insurance contract (including reinsurance) is that the other party might become insolvent and unable to perform its obligations under the contract. Both insurer and insured will therefore wish to have the right to cancel the insurance mid-term in the event of the other party’s insolvency, or a change in its financial circumstances that makes its insolvency a more likely prospect in the near future.
