Insurance Lawyers

CMS Adonnino Ascoli & Cavasola Scamoni is a leading Italian firm for Insurance law. Many of our lawyers have worked and/or have been seconded in the insurance market (including the London market), which means we understand the complexities of your markets.

Our advice covers all aspects of insurance and reinsurance law. In particular, the firm has outstanding expertise in (re)insurance dispute resolution, regularly advising domestic and foreign life and non-life insurance companies, brokers, agents on a wide range of (re)insurance claims (e.g. D&O, P.I., P.O., MedMal, G.L., bonds, and more).

Our services and expertise extend from conventional advice on complex claims with regard to liability and insurance coverage and/or assistance before Italian Courts, Arbitration Tribunals and in Mediation procedures, through the enforcement of awards in Italian Courts, to the design of new insurance products and advice on drafting policy wordings. We also have remarkable experience in assisting underwriters in placing W&I policies.

We have advised insurance companies and other players on issues around insurance regulatory law for many years. We also represent and assist our clients before IVASS (the Italian Insurance Regulator) for alleged infringements of laws and regulations.

Our experts have unique expertise and provide corporate advice on mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, competition, tax, employment law, property advice and structured finance matters to support insurers, brokers and agents through its multi-disciplinary team.
