Insurance Law 

We advise direct and reinsurance companies, as well as captives, in all areas of Swiss and foreign insurance law with regard to supervisory and contractual matters.

We support companies during the founding phase, as well as during restructuring projects and office relocations. In addition to preparing documents and contractual documentation in compliance with company law and supervisory regulations, we also assist insurance companies in developing internal organizations with all the required processes and infrastructure.
