He has advised clients operating in the Lloyd’s market, London market and life insurers on intra-group reinsurance/retrocession (covering proportional and non-proportional treaties, stop loss, XL, fees and facultative covers) covering multinational programmes. He was also involved in the first unilateral UK reinsurance APA and the first bi-lateral UK/German APA for a UK insurer in respect of its branch profit allocation to its German branch.
