Insurance & Reinsurance

  • Description

    We provide specialized advice on insurance and reinsurance to leading local and international insurers and reinsurers, as well as to insurance and reinsurance intermediaries.

    With a long and successful history of advising foreign investors on establishing new insurance companies in Peru and new business models in the insurance industry, we are the most experienced firm in setting-up new insurance companies in the Peruvian market. We also regularly advise foreign investors and local companies on obtaining licenses, permits, and authorizations in different insurance areas, including reinsurance activities.

    We have wide experience in advising the insurance industry on mergers and acquisitions, and investment operations, besides assisting them on their operational and regulatory needs. Our team also advises on the assessment and mitigation of risks and exposures arising from merger and acquisition operations and other corporate transactions.

    Our advice on insurance and reinsurance matters extends to several financial transactions, as we advise lenders, investors, sponsors and borrowers of several sectors, including energy, mining, and infrastructure.

    Moreover, our team has successfully collaborated in structuring private debt issuance operations exclusively designed for insurance companies, advising on the compliance with all the requirements established by insurance regulations so that they are considered eligible investments.

    Finally, our team has experience in insurance and reinsurance litigation, including matters of civil liability, coverage under D&O and E&O policies, professional liability, life, health and disability insurance, builders risk, and cyber-risk, among others, as well as matters related to surety and surety bonds.
