FERRERE represents the chief insurance and reinsurance companies operating in the Southern Cone. Thanks to the strong emphasis on specialization that characterizes the insurance team, clients request their services in obtaining licenses, product design and approval, and management of negotiations or disputes with regulators. The team also has vast experience in opening up new business channels and in structuring joint ventures and strategic alliances. It represents global companies and regional insurers, who it supports in green field projects, acquisitions, mergers and growth strategies. When necessary, the Insurance and Reinsurance team brings in attorneys from other practice groups, economists and actuarial specialists.

In insurance, FERRERE focuses on effectiveness of solutions from the economic standpoint. Its specialists manage all aspects of insurance and reinsurance disputes, claims, coverages and recoveries, as well as the prior diligence process to ensure a favorable position in the event of a future dispute.

An on-going professional relationship with regulators and supervisors contributes to team members’ ability to react. They take action immediately in defense of clients in cases of changes in trends, opportunities or regulatory threats. Their knowledge of regulatory theory and of the industry, beyond specifically legal aspects, facilitates coordination with firms in various jurisdictions.

FERRERE's insurance team regularly advises companies like MetLife, AIG, Zurich, Swiss Re, Liberty Mutual, San Cristóbal and Guy Carpenter, among others.
