Reinsurance

Facultative and treaty, litigation and arbitration, recoveries, run off, wordings and new products. Whatever your reinsurance requirements, we'll have you fully covered.

We have a broad range of reinsurance expertise and experience.

On the contentious side, we advise on facultative and treaty reinsurance disputes, whether you're a reinsurance provider or policyholder.

We're well versed in classic coverage issues such as aggregation, claims control, follow the settlements and wording mismatches. We also advise on less common coverage issues, including in the legacy sector. Our offices in London, Hong Kong and Singapore commonly advise on a range of facultative and treaty coverage issues and disputes globally.

On the non-contentious side, we can create a reinsurance solution specific to your needs. Our diverse work in this area has seen us advise on reinsurance in the public as well as private sectors. We've advised on inter-group reinsurance structures and have extensive experience in reinsurance policy-wording review and drafting.
