Guy Carpenter & Company, LLC, the global risk and reinsurance specialist of the Marsh & McLennan Companies has published a report on the “Recent Legislative and Judicial Trends in Continental Europe Affecting the Casualty Insurance Industry.”

The report was authored by Guy Carp’s International Casualty Specialty Unit, in conjunction with the international law firm DLA Piper, as the second in a bi-annual series.

It provides a brief summary of key legislative and judicial changes taking place in Continental Europe on a territory-by-territory basis, including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

“We launched this series to help insurers and reinsurers navigate an increasingly complex legal liability environment in Continental Europe,” noted George Carrington and David Lewin, of Guy Carpenter’s International Casualty Specialty practice. “Our aim is to provide a concise overview of the major legal and legislative trends on a country-by-country basis, focusing specifically on those developments that have the greatest impact – or potential impact – on organizations covering legal liability risks. We would like to extend our thanks to DLA Piper for their outstanding assistance in assembling this report.”
