Jonathan LathamCains

With a leading corporate team, Cains is well versed in advising on transactions and regulatory compliance in the insurance sector, with the additional capabilities of drawing upon its strong bench of litigators. Consultant Jonathan Latham has an impressive background advising on major corporate transactions and reorganisations, and more recently has been advising on insurance issues surrounding the pandemic and its economic consequences. Tristan Head is also a name of note for transactions and regulatory work, but is also a key name for bond issuances and public listings. Lindsey Bermingham leads on the contentious side, and is most notably strong in cases concerning anti-money laundering. Senior associate Matthew Quinn is a promising name at junior level.
