Insurance

The firm's insurance team is composed of highly specialized lawyers, who counsel and represent both the insured parties and insurance companies on a wide range of complex insurance matters including liability arising out of construction site accidents, political risks insurance, directors' and officers' liability and environmental liability.

Our work includes reviewing and interpreting insurance policies and assessing whether certain claims are covered by these policies. Further, we represent clients in parallel proceedings which arise from insurance matters before criminal and civil courts related to fatal accident claims, compensation claims arising from construction works, claims related to property damage and force majeure events.
