Deborah Mcbrearty - Tokio Marine HCC

Tokio Marine HCC specialises in customising innovative Transaction Risk Insurance solutions that effectively bridge the gap between deal parties in an M&A transaction. When the complexity of risks inherent in a corporate level transaction, such as a merger or acquisition, can be such that they threaten the deal itself, our Transaction Risk Insurance team looks to offer a convenient risk transfer solution that can enhance the deal.

Deborah McBrearty heads this team, conducting business out of our Barcelona office. With over twenty years’ experience in legal practice and the insurance industry, Deborah is a dual qualified (UK/New Zealand) lawyer, who has specialised in the arrangement of bespoke insurance solutions for Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) including W&I, Tax, and IPO products, among other forms of contingent risk transfer since she joined the insurance industry.

Our Barcelona office along with teams based in London and Munich represent the Financial Lines division of Tokio Marine HCC and form the centre of excellence for these lines of business and M&A Transaction Risk Insurance. As we have a truly global outlook, we also act as the international distribution hub for further Tokio Marine HCC specialty products.
