Insurance and Reinsurance

Due to the full service nature of our firm, we are able to assist insurance or reinsurance companies, both domestic and international, in all legal matters from transactional advice to litigation.

Depending on the needs of our clients, we assemble a bespoke team of experts to address all issues concerned. The practice areas include personal injury, corporate transactions, life and non-life insurance, regulatory issues, product liability and professional liability. We also act on matters in niche areas like trade credit or securitisation.

Of particular note is our continuing assistance of a major insurance company in class action type litigation related to Branch 23 insurance products. Further to this, our litigation team handles the full range of matters from volume claims to complex insurance and reinsurance disputes including those before Belgium’s Supreme Court (Hof van Cassatie/Cour de cassation) and the Netherlands Supreme Court (Hoge Raad).

Should it be necessary, we draw upon the expertise of our criminal law practice.
