A new opening has been created for a Corporate Insurance Solicitor to join this international law firm. The role could be based in Edinburgh or London and would ideally suit a Solicitor with a minimum of 3 years of relevant PQE.

The Corporate Insurance team is an integral part of this full service insurance practice which boasts over 50 lawyers. The insurance sector client base includes each of the top 10 UK general insurers and 6 of the top 10 UK life insurers. They also have numerous legal directory rankings for the insurance offering.

The Corporate Insurance team currently comprises 10 dedicated lawyers who advise life insurers, general insurers, and reinsurers on a broad range of matters but with a particular focus on:

  • M&A

  • Reorganisations

  • Part VII transfers, both domestic and cross-border

  • Reinsurance

  • Regulatory matters

  • Other risk transfer mechanisms

  • With-profits issues

  • Solvency II

In addition to the above, successful candidates will have an opportunity to work on commercial matters such as product development and distribution arrangements. The team also advises other financial institutions like retail banks, private banks, intermediaries, brokers and asset managers on a broad range of transactional matters too.


The team has had significant success winning instructions on complex strategic transactions (including reorganisations prompted by Brexit).  They most regularly compete for work against the magic and silver circle firms.

The successful candidate will ideally have gained experience in a City firm or a large regional practice.  Candidates must be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development.  They will be a team player with a strong client focussed approach.  They will also have a strong academic background and excellent communication and organisational skills.
