A management role heading up a global team of 8 to 10 lawyers has become vacant at a top reinsurer due to internal restructures and promotions. This department head position is based in London but oversees the lawyers based in Europe, the US and Asia and will involve occasional travel. Supporting 2 transactional business divisions will required you to lead and steer lawyers of various levels through a workload consisting of portfolio transfers, reserve financing solutions, run off deals, XXX transactions, insurance linked securities, natural catastrophes and the like. Cross border transactional experience within this space is essential and you will ideally come from a property and casualty and/or life and health background. Prior management experience is a must and any additional M&A or structured finance experience useful. You should have excellent business acumen and prior detailed exposure to other group functions as well as underwriting and claims as well as excellent communication skills, energy and passion.
