Chubb opts for a rebrand to reflect broader M&A product solutions and continued spacialisation in the sector

Chubb Insurance has re-branded its former “Warranties & Indemnities” team as “Mergers and Acquisitions Insurance” to reflect its continued specialisation in the M&A sector.

The re-brand was also designed to highlight Chubb’s broader product solutions for M&A transactions. To coincide with the expansion the company announced the appointment of Alex Christians as senior underwriter and legal counsel to the M&A team. Alex was previously at Reed Smith Richards Butler LLP, where he was a senior solicitor in the Corporate Group.

Robert Brown, UK and Ireland manager, Mergers & Acquisitions Insurance, at Chubb said: “We are delighted Alex has joined our M&A team, which is a growth area of our business, and I am sure that Alex’s wealth of knowledge and experience will contribute to further growth of the division; he has an impressive professional profile which will be valuable to the business and further enhance the service Chubb provides.”

Jeremy Miles, UK and Ireland manager, specialty insurance, at Chubb said: “Chubb Insurance specialises in providing insurance solutions for the M&A sector, which has its own needs as a client group. This has been a strong area of growth for us and, with this expansion and our expertise and experience, we expect to expand significantly as we move forward.”
