Switzerland

Our insurance team consists of industry experts who competently advise and represent you in all legal matters

Whether you are an insurer, broker, reinsurer or insured party, you face an increasingly unpredictable world.

With our specialist lawyers in 41 countries and 73 offices, we are attuned to your commercial interests and can protect them in your home market and across borders.

Our approach is based on strong local legal knowledge delivered to you on a European-wide basis by experts who truly understand the insurance sector.

Many of our lawyers have worked in the insurance sector which means we understand the complexities of your markets.

The core competencies of our multi-disciplinary specialists include among others:

  • Guidance on claims,
  • Regulation policy drafting,
  • Drafting and reviewing (re)insurance and brokerage contracts,
  • Wider business disputes,
  • M&A,
  • Capital raisings and restructurings,
  • Cyber liability,
  • HR, tax, real estate matters,
  • Commercial issues

Equally, in the event of a domestic or cross-border insurance or reinsurance dispute, we can guide you through the disputes process, striving to secure the best business outcome.

We have a recognised domestic and cross-border track record of delivering for clients on the most complex transactional and advisory engagements in this sector.
