Your name is associated with the fight of restaurateurs and hoteliers during the health crisis: what were the issues?

The health crisis and the confinements have revealed the inadequacy and imprecision of the indemnification clauses in the event of a pandemic included in the insurance contracts taken out with Axa by hoteliers and restaurateurs. The standoff aimed to obtain the management of operating losses linked to administrative closures due to the Covid epidemic. This fight moved the lines and called for greater clarity, particularly on the scope of the exclusion clauses.

On what types of claims do you assist mutual insurance companies and bank insurers?

If insurance law is a niche specialty, the subject is very broad. It covers water damage – one every four seconds in Paris – industrial risks, bodily injury, fires, explosions… We defend our clients on all of these issues. Our activity is 65% litigating everywhere in France. The advice part also concerns companies and is mainly aimed at assisting them with their insurance coverage in order to be certain that it covers their real needs.

What advice can you give to individuals or companies in terms of insurance?
