How our international cooperation serves you
Local contact, global access
You have a personal contact at BLD handling your matters abroad while simultaneously enjoying access to lawyers in the world’s most important jurisdictions.
High-level legal representation
You are represented globally by specialised insurance and liability lawyers who, like the team at BLD, have been leaders in their jurisdictions for decades.
You receive smoothly provided support from law firms that have adapted their services to the needs of insurers and their clients, and developed a corresponding organisational structure, work processes and law firm culture.
Optimal team composition
You have access to teams of lawyers organised in the ideal manner for each requirement and who are familiar with the local conditions, culture, courts and authorities.
You receive timely and comprehensive reporting that gets to the point, a trustworthy resubmission system and a proactive approach when action is needed.
High level of customer service
One of the services at your disposal is an extensive international knowledge transfer, for example, in the context of training courses, the use of modern and secure communication channels, or coordinated management information.
You receive a reasonable cost budget and comprehensible billing from lawyers who work efficiently and keep their fees within reasonable limits.
Pragmatic advisory approach
Rather than expensive expert opinions that only point out problems without concrete instructions for action, you will receive precise suggestions that you can implement as a client. You will be spared unmanageable and expensive clarifications of facts from your legal team when these are not absolutely necessary.
