Bergenser Law Firm has extensive experience on drafting insurance policies and insurance conditions for both Danish and international insurance companies.
Lawyer Søren Bergenser has significant experience from giving lectures on issues relating to insurance law at the universities and private education providers.
Bergenser Law Firm advises on both drafting entire sets of insurance conditions as well as drafting select articles in the conditions.
As a special competence we assist international insurance companies in introducing new insurance products to the Danish market which products that are well known and commonly used internationally, in order to adapt the products in the most appropriate manner to the special Danish insurance law conditions, both regarding financial supervision law and to the Danish Insurance Contract Act. In relation to this Bergenser Law Firm provides legal opinions on the adapted policies and conditions.
Another special competence is interpretation of policies in relation to coverage, both in relation to fundamental Danish conditions, for instance SKAFOR’s conditions on casualty and product liability insurance, and in relation to fundamental insurance law interpretation of the provisions in the Danish Insurance Contract Act, as well as more specialized insurance products for instance recall insurance, contaminated products insurance or specialized insurance products relating to financial lines. With reference to the latter it is characteristic that the extent of coverage has not yet been determined in case law which is also the situation for English conditions under Danish law.
Bergenser Law Firm has extensive experience on the area and is experienced in both national and international arbitrational courts within these issues.
