On 1 September 2011, Clyde & Co launched two offices in Canada through a merger with leading Canadian insurance firm Nicholl Paskell-Mede. The Clyde & Co Montréal office is uniquely placed to advise on complex legal issues affecting the Canadian and international insurance industries.
The firm's top-rated Montréal lawyers represent an international clientele composed primarily of property, casualty and special risks insurers, in addition to a number of large corporations, institutions and professional orders. They offer clients not only traditional claims-related services - including advocacy, litigation, arbitration and mediation - but also non-traditional services such as claims monitoring, claims auditing, policy drafting and review, and risk management consulting.
Particular areas of expertise include:
- Alternative dispute resolution
- Accountants and auditors' liability
- Civil and commercial litigation
- Class action litigation
- D&O liability
- Insurance law
- Insurance subrogation
- Insurance wording services
- Municipal and government liability
