Insurance (social and private) law

Our firm will advise and assist you in all matters relating to private insurances and social security, whose complexity results form the juxtaposition of different regimes and the inexistence of a social security Code.

The Swiss social security system includes the following regimes: sickness insurance (LAMal), accident insurance (LAA), old-age, survivors and disability insurance (AVS/AI) and complementary benefits (LPC), old-age, survivors and disability professional planning (LPP), individual planning, unemployment insurance (LACI), family allowance (LAFam) and canton-specific rights, military insurance, and allowance for loss of income in case of military service or pregnancy (LAPG) and social assistance.

Our lawyers are specialised in these fields where claims for civil liability are frequent (accidents on construction sites, traffic accident, or malpractice, amongst other).

More specifically, we will:

  • Advise you in all social and private assurances regimes, particularly in the drawing up of contracts, and in examining social insurances cover
  • Represent you in all negotiations in the fields of civil liability and insurance issues
  • Commence, or defend you in any civil, criminal or administrative lawsuit
  • Assist you in legal proceedings before the judicial authorities or the competent arbitration courts.
