The insurance team of ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN has 90 years of experience in insurance law, and with approximately 20 lawyers specialised in insurance law it is one of the largest insurance law teams in the German market.


Our insurance team advises various players in the insurance market (insurers, policyholders and intermediaries) in all questions related to insurance law and covers the whole range of topics, from the development and distribution of the product to the support which we provide in the event of a claim. In this work we always take into account the alterations which regularly arise in the insurance industry, the changes in the regulatory framework and the constant new challenges which face the sector.

We can draw on more than 90 years of experience in insurance law, and with about 20 lawyers specialised in insurance law we now form one of the largest insurance law teams in the German market. As an active member of numerous specialised national and international insurance associations (e.g. the International Union of Marine Insurance, Global Insurance Law Connect, the German Consequential Loss Liability Association (DGVH), the Insurance Science Society Hamburg) we combine an in-depth understanding of German insurance law with new ideas drawn from other areas of law and jurisdictions.

Our experienced and specialised insurance team is not only characterised by its long-standing expertise and experience, but also be its enthusiasm for innovations and new challenges. We offer practicable and customised solutions, and at the same time we are always aware of the business factors involved. With our experience and creativity we can support you in implementing your ideas.

We are known and recognised both nationally and internationally for our expertise in maritime and transport insurance law. We have provided legal advice in this specific area for more than nine decades. We have been consulted in many of the major publicly known maritime and transport insurance law claims and projects.


Another focus of our work consists of the areas of liability and financial lines. In the area of D&O insurance we work with the insurers in areas such as product development, but we are also regularly consulted by policyholders – after consultation with the insurers where necessary – and commissioned to defend against claims for compensation.


We support insurance intermediaries – and those who want to enter this line of business – in all legal questions related to their work. We provide representation in E&O cases, and we also provide comprehensive consultation in all questions related to insurance intermediary law. This also involves fulfilling new regulations and laws and implementing compliance structures. Our clients in this area include insurance intermediary enterprises with global operations, classical insurance brokers and insurance intermediaries which have specialised in on-line sales.


We are a team – and at the same time we are many teams: ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN brings together more than 320 members of staff – including 20 specialists in the area of insurance law – offering a wide variety of legal and tax expertise. This means that we can use our synergies at any time and offer fast and systematic support in almost all relevant areas of business and the economy.
