The UK arm of Bermuda-based life reinsurer Scottish Re has appointed George Scott as its first ever in-house lawyer.
Scott, previously a corporate legal adviser at Royal & SunAlliance Insurance Group, is set to join Scottish Re Holdings as legal counsel this Wednesday (18 February).
During his time at Royal & SunAlliance, Scott was primarily involved in around 15 disposals in the UK, Continental Europe, the US, South America and South Africa, with total proceeds of more than £800m.
Scottish Re, which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, has operating companies in Bermuda, North Carolina, Dublin, Ireland, Grand Cayman, and Windsor.
Royal & SunAlliance’s legal department did not return calls for comment and Scottish Re was unavailable for comment.
