Lupicinio launches Aviation & Insurance Law, adds of counsel
Lupicinio International Law firm consolidates two key areas of specialisation, Aviation Law and Insurance Law with the incorporation of Irene Sánchez del Río Moreta as of counsel
Both areas will have an experienced and multidisciplinary team, specialised in providing comprehensive advice in both sectors. They will work together with other practice areas to develop cross-cutting solutions in all matters affecting companies in the industry.
Irene Sánchez del Río (pictured), a Law graduate from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and with a Master’s degree in Corporate Legal Consultancy from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, has a long track record as a senior lawyer specialising in transport insurance and air transport. Irene also stands out for her teaching activities in the field of specialised postgraduate courses, which have been a constant feature of her professional life. She is the director of the Air Law programme of the posgraduate course of Specialist in Air and Space Law of ICADE. She is also founding member and Air & Insurance lawyer at LEI Abogados, as well as Academic Coordinator member of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Association of Air and Space Law (AEDAE). She is a specialist in Air Contract Law by IATA and also holds a Master´s degree in Air Transport Management and another in Aeronautical Systems Management.
Irene and the rest of the team are aware of the challenges faced by aviation and insurance professionals, and that client needs are especially critical in these times of crisis.
With regard to Aviation, COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the aviation industry, resulting in the loss of thousands of jobs in the sector and necessitating the intervention of EASA to alleviate the requirements for the maintenance of licences, ratings and certificates for aircrew, among other needs.
In relation to Insurance, this sector is under increasing regulation by the European Union to protect consumer rights. This issue has led to an increase in the requirements to be met by intermediaries, the information to be provided in the process of contracting a product, those related to the solvency of insurers, and even the content of the coverage of certain policies.
These two new areas of specialisation will be added to its existing leading practices and will serve Lupicinio´s clients all over the world.
