    Chambers Latin America (Brazil), 2015: Insurance

    Our insurance heritage and experience in international trade ensures we are uniquely positioned to advise on insurance issues across the supply chain.

    The end-user based nature of the retail and consumer sector exposes industry participants to a high level of responsibility and duty of care that requires both proactive and defensive legal expertise that few firms can offer.

    We work closely with insurance companies representing clients across the breadth of the retail sector including; designers, manufacturers, importers and retailers.  As a result we have built up the critical understanding and insight to give our clients clear pragmatic advice in this complex arena.

    Areas in which we have particular expertise include:

    • Defective design and manufacture
    • Product safety and personal injury
    • The defence of class actions
    • Contractual liabilities and exclusions
    • Claims for financial and consequential loss
    • Subrogated recoveries
    • Employer's and public liability
    • Product liability
    • Third party claims

    Operating in a market with such inherent risk requires the market-leading legal advice.
