The Group of distressed assets will bring together resources from Willis’ real estate and hotel, construction, environmental, executive risks, financial services and mergers and acquisitions practices, and its loan protector unit, according to Structured Finance News.

The new unit will be headed by Brian Ruane, national real estate and hotel practice leader, who founded the Willis  Holding Group in 2005.

The distressed assets practice seeks to coordinate capabilities from across the Willis’ practice areas to structure insurance programs that respond to a range of risk management and insurance issues related to distressed assets.

Major areas of focus include property, liability and environmental insurance; forced-placed coverage; insurance for real estate-owned assets; professional liability insurance and construction insurance for incomplete projects.
