The perfect mastery of Insurance Law allows the team to propose amicable solutions in the context of pre-litigation. The lawyers negotiate and settle, in complete confidentiality, to reach a transactional protocol, accepted and acceptable by all parties.
The team assists and defends Clients before civil, criminal and administrative courts in the field of Civil Liability and Insurance Law, both in first instance and on appeal.
The team has expertise in complex and/or high-stakes financial cases, and determines, in conjunction with the Client, the urgent measures to be taken to preserve the latter’s interests. The lawyers initiate the necessary legal actions to achieve the determined objectives and limit the economic and financial consequences.
In the event of an undetermined cause of damage, the team intervenes judicially to obtain the appointment of a legal expert, to determine the technical causes, the responsibilities, and to quantify the prejudices, whether it is a question of repair work, operating loss, or additional costs.
Finally, the team exercises the necessary recourse for the compensation of the prejudices suffered by the Customer following a disaster.
