Insurance > Advice to insurers Tier 3

At KPMG Law in Germany‘s insurance law practice, clients benefit from its special expertise in contract and supervisory law, although transactional matters also represent an important focus; reorganisations and restructuring unrelated and related to Brexit form another part of its advice portfolio.

Insurance regulatory law expert Frank Fischer joined Deloitte Legal Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH in April 2021. Linda Oppermann, previously at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, joined the Munich office in September 2021.

‘Expert knowledge, wealth of experience, knowledge of sector procurement law, ability to understand the legal framework, opportunities, etc. also for the non-legal clients of the in-house colleagues.’

‘Solution-oriented and not problem-oriented, very pleasant to deal with (no arrogance or aloofness) – also with non-legal clients of the in-house colleagues, availability and flexibility in terms of time and place, understanding of the client’s operational processes (e.g. ‘coordination rounds ‘ and requirement for internal decisions).’

‘The questions to be solved were analyzed together as a team and marginal issues were also included in the solution.’

‘Very committed, quickly familiarized with the issues and the complexity of a political group, very understandable in the formulations and communication even for non-legal colleagues.’
