Loyens & Loeff

Insurance

Insurance law is constantly evolving, and changes in financial supervision law are made with great frequency and follow one after another at a steady rate. In addition, the duty of care owed by insurers and insurance brokers is constantly expanding, and this duty of care is being increasingly shaped by financial supervision law. Furthermore, social developments have brought about the need for new insurance products, such as data and cybercrime insurance and insurance for self-propelled cars. And insured persons are increasingly asking questions about the coverage provided by these new insurance products.

Loyens & Loeff advises and litigates on a wide variety of insurance-related issues and has extensive experience in assisting all parties in the insurance process, including insurers, reinsurers, insurance brokers and commercial insureds.
