Page commented "We are delighted to have advised the team at GRP on these deals which continue our strong track record of advising entrepreneurs and institutions in the insurance sector. Activity levels in the insurance sector, in particular M&A, appear to be on an up-turn and we continue to talk to clients about strategic opportunities in the London market".
