Heike Schmitz focuses on advising companies of the insurance sector on all corporate matters (including M&A transactions, run-off/legacy business and complex group restructurings) as well as the investment of assets (including treasury matters, e.g. group financing and cash pooling). In addition, she advises insurance companies, fund management companies and asset managers on German fund law and fund structuring.

Based on her long-term experience in the group legal department of a large European insurance group she provides an "inside" perspective in many topics relevant for German insurance companies and special experience in working with interdisciplinary teams (including asset management, accounting and tax) within company structures.
