Insurance

Overview


Insurance industry players face legal, regulatory and business challenges, especially given the sector’s complexity and recent, rapid evolution. To successfully tackle these challenges, clients need a legal advisor that understands the market – where it’s been and where it’s going – and has front-line experience advising on a broad range of legal issues unique to insurance.

McDermott’s Insurance team has 35+ years of experience providing advice across a broad range of transactional and regulatory matters and dispute resolution. Because we’ve “seen it all,” we often act as industry consultants; we help clients develop groundbreaking insurance and reinsurance products, leverage private equity and venture capital opportunities, structure acquisitions for optimal tax benefits and defend against “bet the company” claims, disputes and multi-state regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings. Our cross-border team of 40+  lawyers includes practitioners from several practice areas – Transactions, Regulatory Litigation, Tax and Privacy –to deliver seamless, one-stop shop advice to our clients, no matter where they do business.
