De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek’s Insurance group covers all areas of insurance law and practice. Our Insurance law practice advises our clients on claims litigation, policy wording and coverage advice. Our regulatory and transaction practice assists a number of insurance companies with M&A, capital raisings and insurance regulatory issues.
Insurance: claims litigation, policy wording and coverage advice
Our core Insurance practice is part of this broader Litigation and Arbitration practice, which also includes a strong Supreme Court litigation practice. Lawyers from other law firms often turn to De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek to handle their insurance matters before the Netherlands Supreme Court.
Our Insurance practice advises corporate clients on a broad range of contentious insurance matters, including D&O insurance, professional liability insurance, Bankers Blanket Bond and general and product liability insurance (GPL). Our team is regularly asked to review clients’ entire insurance portfolios and to advise on policy wording. As our corporate clients often have global insurance portfolios, cases handled by the Insurance practice are frequently international in nature. The group handles many coverage disputes, generally representing large corporate insureds.
Eelco Meerdink heads the Insurance practice group. He is a specialist in insurance law and has broad experience in both contentious insurance matters, particularly arbitration and litigation on coverage issues, and non-contentious matters, particularly strategic advice on clients’ global insurance programmes.
Insurance: M&A, capital raisings and insurance regulatory practice
Our corporate lawyers assist a number of international insurance companies with their business requirements in the Netherlands. Our clients entrust us with significant mergers and acquisitions, (regulatory) capital-raising transactions, large outsourcing arrangements, global custody and securities lending, as well as investment management mandates. Clients also recognise our expertise when seeking advice on which complex supervisory rules they are subject to. We have a strong insurance regulatory practice. Two factors in particular contribute to the strength of the insurance regulatory practice:
