Legal 500 describes Prager Dreifuss' insurance team as follows:

"Prager Dreifuss AG‘s insurance team, regarded as a ‘highly skilled and very dedicated team’, has been involved in high-profile insurance and reinsurance investigations and disputes in connection with a number of areas, including professional indemnity, errors and product liability. The practice also handles regulatory matters. Members of the insurance team are also regularly designated by insurers as defence counsel for policyholders. The team is led by Christoph Graber who has vast experience in the field of banking and financial services, E&O, D&O, EPL and product liability insurance. Hans-Ulrich Brunner, with more than 25 years’ experience in defence litigation, has expertise in insurance and tort. Alongside them, Gion Christian Casanova and Reto Jenny strengthen the team. Counsel Andrea Stäubli is a key name."

What our clients say about the Insurance Team

‘The team is the right size (neither too big nor too small). The partners are experts in their fields and the associates deliver high quality work. The firm is well networked and cooperates profitably with other firms when necessary. As far as we can tell, the firm offers associates a better work-life balance than comparable firms.’

‘We appreciate the consistently excellent quality of the cooperation, Dr. Graber’s profound knowledge of insurance, contract and procedural law, his experience, his tactical skills, his understanding of the insurance market and his weight as one of the best-known insurance law specialists in Switzerland, whose published doctrinal opinions are not only dogmatically well-founded but also always the result of balanced considerations of interests.’

‘Christoph Graber is very well known on the market for his negotiation skills, his creativity when analyzing complex matters. He is able to bring structure into the most confusing disputes. His communication skills are widely known to the market.’

‘Reto Jenny: what distinguishes him most from his peers is that he is not just trusting his experience, but he is very patient and diligent when having to analyze extensive documents received from the client or the claimant in a dispute. He is very well organized and able to quickly understand and put a memo in place for any large and chaotic cases. Also his writs are well received.’
