Claims

Claims are daily business not only for insurers and brokers, but also for Lydian. We assist our insurance clients in all classes of insurance such as property insurance, construction all risk (CAR) insurance, business interruption, product liability, public liability, D&O, professional liability and life insurance. We have assisted our insurance clients in these areas in the largest and most important claims over the last decade in Belgium. This includes policy disputes, subrogation claims and defence work. In addition, we are one of the very few Belgian firms that has experience in handling reinsurance/retrocession disputes before Belgian courts and advise US and UK retrocessionaires on the handling of underlying Belgian claims by the original insurers. Furthermore, we often assist UK and US law firms in reporting to reinsurers on their market about claims handling under the original policies and we also assist domestic insurers in the arranging of market meetings. We are therefore used to participating in market meetings on the London market. Our insurance litigation work is not limited to just acting before the state tribunals and courts, but also includes both ad hoc and  institutional arbitration proceedings and also mediation. In our defence work, we have extensive experience in taking into account both the concerns of the insurers and their clients. An important feature of Lydian’s claims work for the insurance industry is also its experienced and value adding cooperation with international and domestic loss adjusters and experts appointed by our common clients.
