Insurance

France

The economic and regulatory environment of the insurance sector has been undergoing radical change for many years: tighter regulation, fight against money laundering, new rules governing the distribution of goods, adapting the sector to new European demands (the ‘Solvency’ and ‘Basel’ regulations etc.). Whether you are in the insurance or reinsurance sector or are a client of such, you are conducting your business in a complex environment, one that has been made unstable by economic, financial and environmental crisis. Our specialized lawyers have a well-developed knowledge of the market, which allows us to answer all your questions quickly and effectively.

In that changing context, understanding and preparing for future changes could give you a certain competitive advantage. The aim of our specialist insurance law team is to guide and advise you in your activities and their development, and to update your insurance contracts and arrangements. Our lawyers have worked with the insurance sector for a long time, which means we understand the complexities of your markets. Though our legal and tax skills cover all the aspects of insurance industry, we are notably recognised specialists in the field of life insurance and have a sound experience with assisting foreign insurance companies who wish to conduct life insurance business in France.
