JUVE Handbook Estimated in insurance law
(Volume 5 of 5 in 2019/2020)
Comment: This Frankfurt firm is regularly advised on sensitive liability cases involving advisors and often comes into play via the recommendation of the advisor’s insurance. Much of the work again involved D&O cases, in which the directors and managing directors concerned often turn directly to the experienced lawyers. Our expertise in tax law is particularly evident in the case of Lotz’s mandate in a lawsuit brought by three investors in a cum-ex lawsuit against Sarasin Bank, which also raises questions of insurance law. In addition, the litigation and IP team opened up further fields beyond insurance law, which led to a higher profile for the firm in the market. In addition, the firm has strengthened its team with an experienced associate, whose special field of professional liability complements the well-established team.
