Comment: This respected firm in insurance is undergoing a consolidation process in which Hamburg and Frankfurt are currently emerging as the most important locations, as, after the loss of the Munich team, the practice in Cologne/Düsseldorf has now also set off on its own with Kerstin Jeske and Dr. René Steinbeck. However, the development in Frankfurt has been positive; Schubach has increasingly expanded litigation work in the personal insurance segment, esp. health insurance policies, and has been able to establish contacts to further clients. In the head office in Hamburg, the partners advised on specialty insurance policies and policy structuring, in addition to the litigation activity. Building on the extensive industry experience of the teams, it will be important to press ahead with its concept of a strong cooperation across various locations, which has so far been less pronounced.
