Overview

As an insurer your relationship with your insureds as well as your position vis-à-vis other insurers is very important.

Our focus is on the cover you offer and your approach of the market. We prefer to solve disputes in an efficient manner with an open mind for all parties' interests. However, we defend you and insureds vigorously against unjustified claims when necessary. In doing so, we do not lose sight of the bigger picture and other possibilities to put an end to the dispute than litigation.

Our area of expertise covers virtually all kinds of insurance (law). Financial lines such as directors' and officers' liability, professional liability and fraud insurance form the core. Cyber and M&A-related insurance products are recent additions and our firm-wide expertise enables us to add significant value.

Recognised insurance practice

Van Doorne has traditionally been working with and for insurers and is recognized as a Band 1 Insurance firm in the Chambers rankings and Legal 500 for many years. Our long-lasting relationships with (inter)national insurance companies are key to the strength of our insurance practice, and our London office enables us to advance these even further.

Van Doorne has an appetite for internationally oriented work. Our independent position allows us to work closely together with specialist insurance and liability lawyers in foreign jurisdictions and insurers frequently instruct us in cross-border matters.
