Reinsurance

Practice Area

Reinsurance

Our attorneys represent ceding companies, reinsurers, and intermediaries in the drafting, analysis, negotiation, and commutation of reinsurance treaties, facultative covers, and loss portfolio transfers, as well as related transactions such as letters of credit, trust or deposit agreements, and financial statement analyses.

When a negotiated resolution of disputes between cedents and reinsurers or reinsurers and retrocessionaires, or with intermediaries is not possible, the Group’s attorneys represent their reinsurance clients in arbitration and litigation nationally. Our attorneys have successfully addressed unique issues that arise during protracted proceedings with a view towards expediting resolution and containing costs. These initiatives included creating an alternative party appointed arbitrator protocol to allow for replacement of the original arbitrator when in mid-hearing he became incapacitated, establishing panel approved protocols to expedite the presentation of evidence, using referees to handle discovery disputes and using panel appointed experts to review the parties’ evidentiary presentations.
