Frankfurt, October 26, 2011 - Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP has advised Germany-based VWDA Versorgungswerk der Architektenkammer Baden-Württemberg, the Baden-Württemberg architects' pension fund, in connection with the renegotiation and supplementing of its entire insurance cover.
The package now consists of, primarily, a newly concluded innovative Directors & Officers (D&O) insurance policy and fidelity (suretyship) insurance complemented by criminal defense, first party (Eigenschaden) and general business liability (Betriebshaftpflicht) insurance.
The matter involved due diligence on VWDA's existing insurance policies and identifying corresponding risks and liability loopholes; conducting an extensive analysis regarding required or appropriate insurance cover; reviewing and comparing policies and offers solicited from various insurers while developing a tailor-made insurance concept meeting the client's specific needs as a highly regulated German pension fund and public law entity; and negotiating the terms and conditions of a multi-layered insurance policy concept with German insurance giant Allianz.
With its re-arranged insurance cover, VWDA is likely to lead the way for other Germany-based public law pension funds.
The Curtis team representing VWDA in this matter comprised Frankfurt office partners Marc V. Kramer and Dr. Markus Söhnchen and associate Patrick Eicher.
