Strategic consulting in an evolving industry
We assist major insurance companies in planning, structuring, managing and terminating their contractual arrangements with agents, producers, associates, consultants and insurance brokers and also handle any relating legal disputes.
We are also routinely instructed by insurance companies to handle litigation concerning damages (arising out of policies against fire, theft, injury, etc.) and life insurance (policies with both single and recurring premiums, whether stand-alone or combined with a financial component, unit/index-linked policies, etc.), an area in which we have long-standing and consolidated expertise in both handling court cases and alternative dispute resolution tools, and specifically conciliation and mediation.
The assistance we provide in the banking sector concerns assuring compliance with the provisions of EU and Italian legislation on the salary conditions and remuneration of directors and employees and our banking team also handles the contractual documentation connected with the analysis and implementation of projects concerning the provision of new services for bank customers. We also assist our banking clients in the stipulation of agreements – including during mediation procedures – on the renegotiation of the contractual conditions that lending banks apply to customers. In court, we handle disputes concerning compliance with the rules on usury and compound rates of interest and actions for contractual and non-contractual liability correlated with reports to the central credit register. In bankruptcy disputes we handle litigation relating to Paulian actions that have involved banks by reason of their previous operations with customers.
In both of these sectors we provide assistance also on real estate matters concerning property assets and disputes in relation to the stipulation and management of leases on office premises in which agencies connected with our insurance and banking clients operate.
