We understand the mechanics of insurance – the need to assess and manage risk and deal with it effectively when claims arise. Our Lloyd’s of London and International Insurance Practice is one of the largest independent insurance practices in Canada, offering a full range of services to brokers, insurers, captive companies and re-insurers, as well as self-administering deductible programs. Our Canadian Lloyd’s of London and International Insurance Practice provides policy construction, coverage and defence services involving professional indemnity, product liability, property, financial product and medical insurance.
Through our contacts with international and domestic insurance brokers and insurers and reinsurers, we have developed the expertise to establish and maintain captive and domestic insurance programs as well as individual placements allowing clients to better manage their primary insurance exposures.
Our Insurance team will coordinate development of captive and reinsurance placements, while our corporate department will coordinate the establishment and papering of captive vehicles in co-ordination with British, Bermudian, BVI, Bahamian and Barbadian regulators and solicitors.
Our captive experience includes:
- Establishment of a captive for a domestic professional association;
- Establishment of a single hard to place risk within a captive venture;
- Establishment of risk-transfer vehicles for not-for-profit companies;
- Establishment of domestic and offshore reinsurance companies.
We also assist clients in establishing insurance companies and programs to respond to a variety of risks. The opinions and assessments of risk we provide allow clients to properly assess their position and needs in the insurance market.
