Job Description

Our client, a leading global law firm, is looking to recruit a non-contentious Insurance lawyer to join the Insurance team.



The newly formed Insurance Team consists of approximately 20 lawyers who focus on both contentious and non-contentious work, the split being roughly 50/50. The primary clients are leading market insurers such as Axa, RSA, Zurich, Allianz, Aegon, Royal London, Friends Life, Aviva and L&G, as well as other London market entities, life companies and friendly societies, Lloyd's Syndicates, and international insurers with businesses in the UK.



The candidate will be expected to support the life insurance and wealth management practice and work closely with the partner who focuses on this area as part of a small team. The work will be both transactional and advisory, based around drafting and negotiating distribution agreements and investment management agreements, advising on life product development, FSA regulatory issues such as the Retail Distribution Review, life reinsurance treaties and insurance business transfers. The successful candidate must be flexible in terms of undertaking similar tasks in relation to non-life insurance products. There will be a need to liaise with other teams such as Pensions and Financial Regulation with which there will be some overlap.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
