Insurance industry merger and acquisition (M&A) deals require a delicate calculus. Understanding the anatomy of the deal, the operations of the parties involved, and the accompanying regulatory and compliance requirements enables Faegre Drinker to help insurance companies successfully plan and execute transactions. Our team, comprising strategic advisers and innovative dealmakers, counsels publicly and privately held insurance entities on M&A, renewal rights, shell acquisitions, venture capital, restructurings, run-offs and assumptions, as well as collateralized reinsurance, insurance-linked securities and distribution channel alignment. We offer full-service support for InsurTech startups, venture capital and corporate venture capital funds, and traditional stakeholders. We quickly mobilize a hand-picked team to handle the due diligence demands of a transaction, prepare required filings with insurance and securities regulators, secure approvals, and coordinate negotiation and documentation. Equally important, we identify issues on the horizon, allowing clients to plan for, rather than react to, potentially impactful events.
