Liability risk management

Profession-specific tools and expert systems enable systematic risk analysis to be performed. Continuous market observation, wide-ranging claims experience and profession expertise all lay the foundations for the appropriate risk assessment standards to which we work.

Working systematic with legal or contractual risk management has a number of advantages, both in terms of economical, administrative and corporate governance gains. It is important to consider the following:

  • Does the company have an overview of its exposure to contractual and legal risks?
  • Does the current insurance meet the actual needs of the company or it is necessary with a review of coverage and terms?
  • Has the company implemented best practice models through standard contracts, containing liability restrictions etc. – and can these be approved and agreed upon?
