We offer comprehensive expertise on the Czech and Slovak insurance and reinsurance markets. Our in-house specialists work closely with regulators to provide tailored advice to clients, helping them meet their goals.
We advise key players in the Czech and Slovak Republics on the transfer of insurance portfolios and the acquisition or divestment of holdings in insurers, reinsurers and intermediaries. We assess the implications of international transactions relating to insurance and reinsurance.
We advise on loss-adjusting activities and provide support o litigation and areas such as bankruptcy law. We assist both insurers and reinsurers on matters relating to reinsurance, including cross-border issues. And we can help clients negotiate or resolve issues with insurance and reinsurance intermediaries.
In addition, we are happy to support clients who plan to introduce new insurance products onto the Czech or Slovak markets.
