Quarrels would not last so long if the fault lay only on one side.

scope of service

Insurance law

Insurance has been issued by a variety of companies for centuries, and at various points in history, the practice has been unregulated and sometimes highly disadvantageous for consumers. The goal of insurance law is to create regulations and standards which govern the practice of insurance sales, policy writing, and handling of claims. In the legal field of Insurance law, we provide legal advice and represent both private clients and corporations in all areas. Among those are for example, the winding-up of major losses for renowned international insurance companies and the fending-off of liability and coverage claims. Reputable legal cost insurers put their trust into our law firm in the area of Insurance law in close collaboration. Our lawyers permanently advise their policyholders with the enforcement or fending-off of claims, but also with respect to the insurance contract and in case of questions regarding service and payout. Whether our law firm is representing the private clients or corporations, the goal is to reach the best possible results on behalf of the client.
