Insurance & Reinsurance
Examples of our expertise in insurance law
Ever tighter regulation necessitates careful and up-to-date legal advice on regulatory measures. Our Insurance Team enjoys good relationships with regulatory bodies such as the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (the AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (DNB). This means that our advice takes into account the interpretation given by the regulatory bodies themselves.
International multiparty disputes require far-reaching legal expertise and a strategic approach. Our insurance specialists possess broad experience in complex cases involving the interests of many different parties.
Insurers need legal assistance to develop their domestic and foreign activities, and so it is not surprising to find our insurance specialists assisting many national and international insurers with their particular problems, including those relating to regulatory law, the introduction of new products and their relationship to the accompanying distribution channel and the end user.
Mass claims have increasingly become a major risk factor for insurers. Houthoff has a specialist team that can be called upon to assist in this area.
Our Insurance Team works closely with our experts in many areas, including M&A, tax law, cassation law and arbitration law. Our in-depth sector knowledge combined with this multidisciplinary approach means that we can pride ourselves on giving future-proof advice.
