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 reinsurance 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).
