Robert Coward

Associate Director

Robert is an Associate Director at HWF.

During this time he advised on all aspects of corporate law, with a particular focus on UK and international private equity and M&A transactions, acting primarily for financial sponsors, management teams, and founders.

Robert subsequently spent a year as a divisional director in the transactional risk team at a global insurance and re-insurance broker, during which time he helped provide insurance solutions for M&A transactions, including warranty and indemnity, tax liability and contingent liability.

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
