Bär & Karrer Advises AON Schweiz on the Acquisition of Assimedia

In January 2020, AON Schweiz AG, a leading global service provider for risk management, insurance and reinsurance brokers as well as adviser on human resources, has acquired 100% of the shares of Assimedia SA, an all-branch insurance broker based in Locarno, Switzerland. This transaction will allow AON Switzerland to extend its market presence, by expanding its insurance and re-insurance broking business in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.

Bär & Karrer acted as legal advisor to AON Schweiz in this transaction. The team included Peter Hsu, Edoardo Buzzi, Tiffany Ender and Paolo Ader (all M&A, Banking & Insurance).
