OTB Eveling recently acted for Van Ameyde Group on its acquisition of the entire share capital of Sverigeskador AB in Sweden.  Van Ameyde is a pan-European insurance claims handling business and the acquisition of Sverigeskador is a result of Van Ameyde’s strategy to expand its cross-border business to local claims handling.  James Eveling, acted for Van Ameyde in conjunction with local Swedish law firm Setterwalls.

James commented: “This is the latest transaction for an ambitious and growing client who are keen to add to their existing network across Europe.  We were able to work successfully to combine our knowledge of how Van Ameyde like to structure acquisitions with local law input where required.  A commercial approach was taken by both sides which ensured that the deal was completed relatively quickly and without complications.”
