S&P Offers Cost-Effective Insurance for Clinical Studies, IPR and Liability

Through their broad expertise and extensive network of insurance providers and external partners, both in Sweden and abroad, Söderberg & Partners can offer cost-effective insurance for clinical studies, IPR and liability.

Söderberg & Partners (S&P) is a company offering insurance and financial products. It was established in 2004 when a core of analysts, led by CEO Gustaf Rentzhog, left one of the Nordic region’s large financial companies. Since the start, it has witnessed a strong growth and Söderberg & Partners Group currently employs more than 900 professionals at 50 offices across Sweden. The group also has offices in the other Nordic countries and China, plus analysis operations in London.
Though the company is fairly young, the employees have many years of experience in the industry. The mediators of insurance and providers of financial advice must have a broad insurance expertise, possess relevant knowledge in law and economics, as well as practical experience.
All advisors at Söderberg & Partners have undergone adequate training and have the required experience. One of them is insurance mediator Ann Karlsson, who joined S&P in October last year. She’s a legal counsel, specialised in IPR and tort law and helps S&P’s life science customers to get the right insurance cover for clinical studies, IPR and liability.
”We act as an external advisor and have a strong team, with complementing competencies, focusing on the life science industry. Through our channels we have access to insurance providers, both in Sweden and on the London market, who are at the forefront in the field of clinical studies, for instance. In our inquiries, we request that the insurers have representation in the countries where the studies are conducted and that they have the necessary competence and financial strength.
”With our know-how about what underwriter information is needed lead time can be reduced,” she tells, and points out that S&P insures clinical studies regardless of where they’re conducted. It could be in the EU or anywhere else in the world. ”To comply to local judicial demands in the insurance policies, we engage local partners.”

Tailored Solutions
S&P also offers competent advice and cost-effective solutions for directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, covering defence costs and any imposed costs of damages. There are a number of questions to consider when taking out this form of insurance, and S&P’s specialists are able to offer expert advice and to help with the design and placement of insurance cover. Through their good contact with the London market, they can also subscribe insurance policies for IPR, covering patents, trademarks and designs.
S&P’s customers are anything from young start-ups to multinational companies and their needs differ substantially. That’s why S&P are committed to tailored solutions.
“Every company has different needs and faces different risks, and we’re dedicated to providing the right solution for each customer at each moment, so they can maintain control over their risks, while focusing on their core business,” Ann Karlsson concludes.
