Insurance Law Global Network Continues Growth Spurt With Addition of German Firm, Lebuhn & Puchta
November 30, 2022 - Insurance Law Global (ILG), an international network of law firms focused on the insurance industry, announced today that the German law firm Lebuhn & Puchta has joined its membership ranks. Earlier this year, the network also welcomed Hong Kong law firm Howse Williams, and the Spanish law firm, López-Ibor Abogados, bringing the new total number of law firms with network membership to nine.
“We are delighted to welcome Lebuhn & Puchta to the Insurance Law Global network,” said Kieran Jones, partner at Weightmans LLP and a member of ILG’s Board of Directors. “The firm acts for clients across a broad range of insurance fields focused on commercial and industrial risk, and is internationally recognized for its expertise. With a deeper bench of litigation strength in Europe, and particularly in Germany, we are better positioned to address our clients’ pressing litigation needs in that area of the globe.”
Lebuhn & Puchta advises clients in all areas of commercial insurance and re-insurance, with emphasis on the Scandinavian and London insurance markets, on matters pertaining to property, liability, D&O and business interruption insurance. The firm assists clients in drawing up terms of insurance and is known for defending claims both in and out of court, and for asserting claims in complex, often cross-border, high-value insurance cases, including marine insurance matters, aviation accidents, serial damage, insured occurrences covered by fire and project insurance, yacht hull damage, business interruptions, closure of businesses in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, and more. In addition to its activity in the insurance sector, the firm has a significant footprint in the German reinsurance sector, acting for a number of major reinsurers in very large cases.
“Joining the Insurance Law Global network is a very exciting step for Lebuhn & Puchta,” said Dr. Dieter Armbrust, firm Partner. “This means joining a dynamic network of members dedicated to delivering a better service to their clients by promoting knowledge - knowledge of the issues which affect clients in their markets and knowledge of how to resolve those issues in local jurisdictions.”
Launched in March 2017, Insurance Law Global has bases in some 38 cities across eleven countries. The network’s independent law firms collaborate to help clients respond to the challenges presented by globalization and the increasingly dynamic political and environmental landscape. Members include Weightmans in the U.K.; Blaney McMurtry in Canada; Ekelmans Advocaten in The Netherlands; AGB in Mexico; Marshall Dennehey in the U.S.; Carter Newell Lawyers in Australia; Howse Williams in Hong Kong; López-Ibor Abogados in Spain; and now Lebuhn & Puchta in Germany.
