A persistently soft market is one of the few predictable elements of working in the global (re)insurance industry. Most brokers, carriers, captives and corporate risk managers have been influenced by falling prices, and with few signs of a correction, companies must innovate, cut costs, seek out merger and partnership opportunities and do more with less.
Despite intense competition, (re)insurance is a magnet for new capital keen to take advantage of the stable returns offered by an established, highly regulated industry.
Long-term advisors to companies in the market, CMS’ award-winning Insurance & Reinsurance Group has adapted to support the requirements of an industry in a constant state of change.
While CMS is a historic market leader in (re)insurance dispute resolution and policy wordings, our teams also deliver a suite of specialisms that meet the needs of insurance and risk management professionals spanning every conceivable business objective.
The firm provides unique expertise in corporate advice on mergers and acquisitions, employment law to support brokers or insurers with a team or key personnel issue, property advice, structured finance and regulatory and compliance.
The CMS Insurance Practice has worked within the insurance and reinsurance markets for over half a century, supporting both carriers and intermediaries in the UK, Europe and beyond. Our long-term involvement in the sector means that we can support clients to make the most of these new opportunities and we understand the issues businesses are facing today.
