Raissa Sciarrone

Raissa’s practice specializes in the placement of W&I insurance on UK, European and international private equity and M&A transactions. Raissa has placed numerous policies for a range of clients, including corporates, institutional investors, management teams, and private equity investee companies. Raissa has the ability to work in English and Italian language.

Recent Experience

Raissa’s recent experience includes:

  • Structured a W&I policy for Hillier Nurseries Ltd’s acquisition of Rosebourne Limited. Involvement touched both sides of the transaction, working with Charles Russell Speechlys (sell-side advisors) and Paris Smith LLP (buy-side advisor).

Prior to joining HWF Partners, Raissa spent approximately 4 years as a corporate lawyer with Latham & Watkins. During this time, she advised on all aspects of corporate law, with a particular focus on Italian private equity and M&A transactions, acting primarily for financial sponsors, management teams, and founders.

HWF’s ability to drive the process forward de-risks the M&A processes we are involved with. We count on their reliability and expertise, even where there are complex issues or challenging timetables

James Renahan, Travers Smith

We use HWF wherever the opportunity arises because they advise, structure and execute W&I insurance policies with great efficiency. Our trust in their service and process allows us to focus on our job resulting in positive client outcomes on their M&A deals

Helen Croke, Ropes & Gray

I am always happy to recommend HWF on deals; their in-depth experience of both M&A and the insurance market, combined with a pragmatic approach, leads to smoother processes, better coverage positions and ultimately happier clients
