The world around us is getting more complicated: technological innovation and climate change are but two examples of developments that have a huge impact on people’s lives and economic activity. As an insurer you wish to continue offering products that meet insureds need for protection against the (financial) consequences of the business opportunities and risk that such developments bring along. However, the speed at which the world changes brings along new challenges to the insurance market.
New products are being developed while at the same time existing products (arguably) offer silent cover for previously unknown risks. Next to coverage questions in respect of individual policies, the interaction between different policies - whether in co-insurance, primary and excess layers, international programs or between unrelated policies - increases and triggers debate. Also, insurers seem to face unforeseen cumulation of risks more frequently.
Van Doorne offers advice and assistance in coverage litigation while not losing sight of the importance of your relationship with insureds and other insurers. We understand that you are in the insurance business to provide cover, but that your policies terms and conditions are essential to your risk appetite. Being able to explain their relevance and keeping an open mind for pragmatic solutions is key to our approach and explains our Tier 1 reputation.
Financial lines - such as Professional Indemnity, D&O, IPO, Fraud, Warranty & Indemnity, Cyber, Bankers Blanket Bonds insurance, and other products for financial institutions - are the core of our insurance practice.
Next to our court litigators, the firm's arbitration and mediation teams assist insurers in relation to conflict management in general and specifically the possibilities of arbitration and mediation.
