From a W&I perspective we specialise in the mid-market private equity space (circa £100m-£600m enterprise value).
Because our Team has more than 50 years of combined transactional insurance experience we are familiar with a very broad range of sectors/industries. This means that unlike some other underwriters we are comfortable with insuring risks in industries like pharmaceuticals, finance, gambling, or tobacco. See our Case Studies for examples.
Brockwell is one of the few W&I underwriters that actively offers both Sell-side Insurance and Synthetic W&I.
Our Tax and Contingent practices complement our M&A insurance offering, but extend beyond M&A to wider risks relating to Institutional Investors / Funds, e.g. from fund or investment structures.
As a result of regularly supporting management sellers in a private equity context, we have developed our Tax offering to include cover for Personal Tax risks relating to high-net-worth individuals, management teams, as well as investment managers.
We will consider a broad range of Contingent Risks, including both contentious and non-contentious legal risks.
Geographically, we are particularly focussed on the United Kingdom, the Nordics, South Africa, and Australasia, but we are also very active in Western Europe, CEE, and the Baltics. However, we have a global appetite and a strong network of top-tier local counsel to help us get deals done.
Our general minimum premium is typically £70,000 for W&I, £85,000 for Tax and £100,000 for Contingent, but this can be lower.
