The purpose of the role will be to advise on and structure insurance relating to Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). This will include selling products including warranty and indemnity insurance which is an insurance product used by buyers and sellers in connection with M&A transactions to cover liabilities under the warranties and tax indemnity. The team works with a lot of corporate lawyers in the Manchester area and law firms of all sizes nationally and internationally.
