There is strength in depth’ in the ‘outstanding’ team at Slaughter and May, which offers ‘the kind of market insight you would expect of a firm with its client list’, which includes the majority of the major UK life insurers. Recent highlights for the practice, which is particularly noted for large M&A deals, include Jonathan Marks advising Standard Life on its merger with Aberdeen Asset Management, and Robert Chaplin acting for Legal & General on the sale of its mature savings business. Elsewhere in this sector the firm has seen some notable Solvency II work and consistently provides ‘practical and insightful advice’ in this area. Another stand-out member of the team is Craig Cleaver, ‘a great lead partner on complex transactions’, who advised Swiss Re on the sale of a minority stake in ReAssure.
