Skadden Adds Leading Insurance Partner in London

Skadden is pleased to announce that Robert Chaplin has joined the firm’s Financial Institutions Group as a partner in our London office. His practice focuses on M&A, private equity, asset management and regulatory matters in the insurance sector.

He is ranked as a leading individual in Chambers UK 2022 for Insurance (Non-contentious), where clients reference his “incredibly pragmatic” approach to complex issues and his “vast knowledge gleaned from a deep network of contacts and prior transactions.” He also is a recommended lawyer in Legal 500 UK 2022.

Todd Freed, global co-head of Skadden’s Financial Institutions Group, said, “We are extremely excited that Robert is joining us. His arrival creates an opportunity for Skadden to further strengthen our insurance M&A platform in the U.K. and Europe. As one of only a few global firms with a premier insurance practice focusing on transactional, finance and regulatory matters, Skadden offers an ideal platform for Robert’s demonstrated skills and experience.”

Lorenzo Corte, a global co-head of Skadden’s transactions practices, commented, “Robert’s arrival will enhance our M&A practice in the U.K. and expand our insurance offerings in this important area.”
