Ashurst and Lovells have won places on Liverpool Victoria’s (LV) £150m acquisition of the Highway Insurance Group in the latest of a flurry of deals in the insurance sector.

Highway called on Ashurst corporate partner John Earle, while Lovells corporate partner Richard Lewis acted for long-time client LV, the UK’s largest friendly society.

Lewis said: “We’re delighted to advise LV on this strategic takeover, which will enable LV to grow significantly in general insurance.”
