Background

Hamburg - The insurance company Thomas Miller, founded in London in 1885, acquired Hanseatic Underwriters and other companies of the Hamburg insurance company Zeller Associates. A Luther team advised Thomas Miller on the transaction.

Thomas Miller is one of the world's leading insurance providers of liability insurance for maritime risks and has been the manager of the UK P & J Club, the world's second largest shipping liability insurance association, for many years.

With the acquisition of Hanseatic Underwriters, these insurance services can now be offered within the EU.

Thomas Miller will thus be able to offer "fixed premium" liability insurance, which is interesting for smaller cargo ships, and will expand this special business in Hamburg over the next few years.

In addition, further companies of Zeller Associates will be taken over, which specialize in claims processing and the handling of insurance portfolios.
