Alexander Dye - Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP

Within: Insurance: non-contentious

The 'combination of exceptionally deep transactional experience, outstanding legal skills and thorough business understanding' makes Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP's 'client-focused' insurance practice 'one of the best in the market'. The team, which focuses on M&A, capital markets and alternative risk transfer matters, is also recommended for its 'very strong insurance regulatory practice' and 'involvement in many of the largest and most complex transactions in recent years'. The client base ranges from life, P&C and financial guaranty insurers to private equity investors, financial funds and commercial and investment banks. Michael Groll took a lead role for Aspen Insurance Holdings on its $2.6bn sale to Apollo Global Management, while 'highly knowledgeable and responsive' John Schwolsky advised on the $2.5bn merger of client Assurant and The Warranty Group. Alexander Dye, who 'inspires the confidence of boards of directors and is able to keep calm under pressure', acted for Protective Life Corporation on a $1.17bn reinsurance transaction which involved the acquisition of the individual life and annuity business of Liberty Life Assurance Company of Boston. All mentioned partners are based in New York.
