Clifford Chance's multi-disciplinary insurance team stands of for 'responsiveness', 'thorough subject matter expertise', 'excellent drafting skills' and 'first-rate advice'. The practice has a particular focus on the development of new corporate and transactional structures tailored to the sector, as well as facilitating capital flow and alternative investment strategies for insurers and reinsurers operating in the life and P&C markets.
