Talk to Richard about

More about Richard

Richard specialises in insurance transactions and regulation. With more than 25 years' experience working with the insurance industry, he advises on a wide spectrum of non-contentious insurance and reinsurance matters, including acquisitions and disposals, risk transfer transactions, restructuring, regulation and compliance, policy wordings and run-off. He is a former Chairman of the Insurance Committee of the City of London Law Society.

Chambers UK 2017 says the "amazingly clever" Richard Spiller is commended for his strong expertise in both transactional and regulatory matters. Sources say: "He's good at it all, whether regulatory or M&A," adding that "he is very good at identifying issues you may not have thought about and good at proposing solutions." Richard is considered "very good at finding practical solutions to difficult legal issues" and "probably one of the smartest corporate lawyers around" (Chambers UK). He is nominated as a leading practitioner in his field in the current editions of Chambers UK, Legal 500 UK, Who's Who Legal: Insurance and Reinsurance, The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers and The Guide to the World's Leading Insurance and Reinsurance Lawyers.
