Insurance

Spain

Insurers and reinsurers, as well as brokers and insured parties, operate in an extremely unpredictable environment. From daily operational tasks to strategic planning, liability and the resolution of disputes, regulations governing the insurance market are both complex and volatile.

The CMS Albiñana & Suárez de Lezo insurance team advises domestic and international insurance companies operating in Spain on the organisation and supervision of insurance activity, the launch and distribution of insurance products in the Spanish market and regulatory issues, as well as insurance agreements, claims, the drafting of conditions, M&A transactions, capital increases and restructuring, cyber-attacks, human resources, taxation, real estate and commercial aspects.

Our professionals have worked closely with the insurance sector in recent years and therefore have an understanding of the complexity of the market as well as a capacity to face the most difficult challenges. Moreover, with regards to domestic and cross-border conflicts, the presence of our 150 insurance experts in 41 countries enables us to provide advice which guarantees the best results, adapting ourselves to the client’s commercial interests in order to protect them in local and international markets.
