Jan Schröder and a team of lawyers have joined the Düsseldorf office of Allen & Overy LLP.
The group will handle the expansion of the firm’s corporate law practice and advise on various aspects of insurance and reinsurance matters, including contractual trust arrangements, company law, M&A and regulatory issues.
Schröder comes from Hogan Lovells, where he was a partner head of the German insurance corporate practice.
Dr Helge Schäfer, head of A&O’s German corporate practice said: “With Jan Schröder’s move, we are taking an important step forward in expanding our Düsseldorf office and the German M&A practice.”
Schröder said that he is looking forward to “utilising the considerable potential of Allen & Overy in the context of future client work.” He adds: “With its outstanding expertise in the financial sector and its global network, Allen & Overy also offers an excellent platform for establishing a leading insurance corporate law and insurance regulatory law practice in Germany.”
