DLA Piper

JuveAwards2016 Logo Germany Insurance_120x124In recent years, DLA Piper has impressively advanced to the top of the market. Today, it goes without saying that the team is among the most renowned D&O advisors. As if there were not enough evidence of this already, this year it became known that the Munich partner Dr. Thomas Gädtke was involved in the complex settlement between Deutsche Bank and its erstwhile executive board member Breuer. With his work in D&O and managerial liability cases, he has, together with the Cologne partner Dr. Christian Schneider, racked up an impressive track record. Over the years, DLA has established enduring contacts to insurers, which are paying off now more than ever. Due to the firm’s profound knowledge of the branch, incl. the regulatory experience of practice head Dr. Gunne Bähr, whose “excellent expertise” a client has emphasized, the DLA insurance lawyers are also regularly sought out for the structuring and wording of products, whether it is a matter of cyberpolicies, W&I or health insurance policies. Most recently, the team was able to use the industry competence from the international DLA network in several new instructions. The practice is thus well equipped to compete with international rivals who are striving to conquer the German market.
