Construction Insurance

Our expertise in construction insurance is built on the foundations of strong practical experience and continuing scientific research on all questions concerning:

  • Compulsory insurance (property and casualty insurance, ten-year civil liability, and other policies containing compulsory insurance)
  • Optional insurance (all risk construction insurance before Opening, Collapse Insurance)
  • But also, and most importantly, common law of insurance (biennial statute of limitation, claim reports, overlapping insurance, franchises, ceilings)

We assist our clients in the subscription to policies (notably damage, property and casualty, all risks construction insurance, and civil liability insurance for property developers) and the implementation of all guarantees provided by the policies insuring risks inherent to construction.


Multi-Risk Insurance

Beyond construction insurance the experienced and skilled GcilA insurance team also deals with:

  • Industrial risk and special risk insurance (i.e. machine breakdown, products liability, fire)
  • Professional risk insurance
  • Personal/physical injury liabilities and insurance


Commercial Lease

We engage in the drafting and negotiation of all acts relative to this field:

  • Leases and their renewal;
  • Subletting contracts;
  • Lease management contracts;
  • Lease-back contracts, etc.

We defend the interests of lessors as well as lessees in litigation procedures in Paris or elsewhere in France (rent-setting, compensation for eviction, termination of lease, repairs incumbent upon the tenant, etc.)
