Liability & insurance law

Accidents happen fast and sometimes carry serious consequences. Liability and insurance law play a major role when you have suffered or caused damages.

 

The dedicated team provides advice and assistance to individuals, insurers, insurance brokers, corporations and governments. Our lawyers can rely on years of experience and deep expertise. They handle all aspects of liability and insurance law.

 

Because our office is well versed in other legal subject areas besides liability and insurance law, we are able to assist our clients in other legal aspects, such as criminal traffic law and fraud, to name but a few.

 

Furthermore, we offer our clients proactive advice on their insurance policies and we can perform an audit of their current insurance policies.
