  • Liability (based on contract or law)
  • Possible damage to property (movable/unmovable)
  • Impact on business continuity

The risk analysis:

  • On-site inspections,
  • Interviews with employees and analyses of contracts,
  • Evaluation of potential damage scenarios,
  • Offer of an insurance solution and advice on the necessary insured amounts.
  • Constant monitoring of the contracts with your clients.
