About the team
We are a team of four lawyers located across Europe, part of the global Contracts function and embedded in the underwriting division. Our daily work consists of drafting our own insurance contract documentation for European domestic and international insurance, as well as reviewing externally drafted wordings and clauses. We support property, casualty, and special lines such as professional indemnity, director's and officer's liability, marine, energy, engineering, construction, aviation and agriculture insurance. We work closely with our underwriters and occasionally with external clients. Our mission is to provide legally sound yet pragmatic advice that enables high quality solutions for our clients. For that purpose, we openly share knowledge and collaborate closely within the team as well as with other corporate functions, such as Legal, Compliance and Claims. In addition, we also contribute to digital projects.
We are offering an unusual job in insurance, requiring legal skills and business insight in an international environment.
