Acting for high-profile global insurers, Lloyd’s syndicates and insurance brokers, boutique specialists Acuña, Hoetz & Cifuentes is particularly focused on high-value loss claims both during the adjustment and settlement stages, as well as in subsequent judicial proceedings, arbitrations and complex subrogation actions.
