He recently advised the Old Mutual insurance group in connection with the sale of its life insurance business of Skandia in Germany and Austria to the European finance investor Cinven and reinsurer Hannover Rück.

At Wolf Theiss, Ralph Hofmann-Credner specialises in insurance and reinsurance disputes. He is a “formidable opponent” and a “great tactician”.
