Life and longevity transactions

From advice on distribution deals and outsourcing transactions to support for mergers and acquisitions, we have all the commercial, transactional and regulatory expertise you need.

With client service at the core of our offering, we have expertise in the areas of bulk annuity, longevity, M&A transactions and regulatory matters.

We have lawyers who have worked in-house within this complex sector, so have the inside knowledge and first-hand experience necessary to make your project a success.

Much of our work is international, using our own London, Hong Kong and Singapore offices, and calling upon our international best friend network of law firms to provide further local expertise where necessary. This helps us ensure we find the best lawyer for the job – whether RPC or a partner firm – keeping cost down and providing high quality advice and service.
