Risque politique et crédit commercial

Notre équipe dédiée au risque politique et en crédit commercial domine le marché dans ce créneau spécialisé

Notre équipe mondiale dédiée au risque politique et au crédit commercial conseille les principales compagnies d’assurance en matière de risque politique et de crédit commercial sur le développement de produits, les réclamations, les recouvrements et les litiges internationaux.

Nous intervenons dans des cas touchant un éventail de juridictions, souvent dans des marchés très difficiles et comprenant des questions de lois internationales et locales ainsi que des questions d’assurance. Nous avons joué un rôle déterminant dans le développement des produits et nous traitons les questions qui se posent tout au long du cycle de vie du risque.

Nous agissons pour le compte de compagnies d’assurance établies à Londres, aux États-Unis, en Europe, au Moyen-Orient et en Asie-Pacifique, et nous avons accompagné nos clients dans toutes les crises majeures qui ont touché les marchés du risque politique et du crédit commercial au cours des 30 dernières années. Parmi les exemples notables, citons des conseils sur les réclamations découlant du printemps arabe en Égypte et en Libye, les effondrements de banques en Ukraine et au Kazakhstan à la suite de la crise financière mondiale et les manifestations politiques thaïlandaises de 2010.

Nous possédons l’expérience des forums privilégiés pour la résolution des litiges dans cette catégorie, en particulier la Cour d’arbitrage international de Londres et le Tribunal de commerce de Londres, ainsi que des arbitrages selon les règles ICCI et UNCITRAL.
