Business activity in today’s world involves the existence of risks of the most diverse nature. Of course, identifying them is possible for those who participate in the agreements to identify the best way to deal with them, whether they are transferred to the counterparty and assumed against the payment of a part of the price or to be transferred to professional insurers,
whose purpose is precisely their coverage.

CMS Rodríguez-Azuero is qualified to accompany sector players at the different levels that are recognized in Colombia, that is, reinsurers, insurers, brokers and insurance agents, as well as companies that need to be covered or that are in situations that require the invocation of the respective coverage, in light of loss.

Within the insurance sector and supporting it, the Firm has a particular recognition as a great specialist in guarantees of various kinds, both insurance and banking, fiduciary and mobile assets, to mention some modern ones.

Of course, when a dispute arises, our team works closely with the dispute resolution practice area.
