scope of service

Insurance law

We advise and represent our clients in almost all areas of law, especially in matters relating to insurance law. This includes, for example, handling major claims for well-known national and international insurance companies and defending against liability and coverage claims. In addition, we are regularly called upon to assist with complex mandates in the area of financial lines, in particular D&O and fidelity insurance, both as coverage and monitoring counsel, as well as to serve as the direct representative of insured persons in civil and criminal cases. We are also regularly commissioned in professional liability cases (architects, doctors, lawyers, notaries, tax consultants, etc.). The drafting and processing of insurance terms and conditions, brokerage conditions and all other matters relating to insurance law are part of our daily work. Renowned insurance companies also rely on our law firm when it comes to regulatory matters and cooperate closely with us.
