Professional Biography

WWL Ranking: Recommended

WWL says

 Björn Fiedler is "very well known in the insurance world", remarks one peer. He has particular expertise in issues relating to D&O claims.

Biography

Björn Fiedler is the founder and managing partner of Fiedler Cryns-Moll Juengel FCMJ Rechtsanwaelte Partnerschaft, a law firm in Cologne focusing on representing and advising insurance companies in complex claims and specific insurance products (including directors and officers liability; errors and omissions coverage; professional indemnity; employment practices liability; representations and warranties; cyber; fidelity; and product liability).

Mr Fiedler began his career in 2001 as an in-house counsel of a large European construction company where he was, inter alia, acting as a member of the board of directors for a subsidiary of the group. In this role, he accumulated broad practical experience regarding the legal requirements of directors and officers when leading a company.

After joining a renowned German law firm, which, at that time, employed more than 120 lawyers, he was appointed as partner of the firm in 2007 and has become a leading name in the insurance industry. Between 2006 and 2014 Mr Fiedler acted as an instructor for lawyers, guiding his colleagues towards the title of "professional advocate" in commercial and corporate law. Since 2015, he has taught on the LLM in insurance law at TH Cologne. In 2016, he founded his own firm.

Much of Mr Fiedler's practice is devoted to representing managers or insurers in defending and monitoring D&O claims. He also has broad practice of handling fidelity and product liability cases. The significance of Mr Fiedler's philosophy lies in combining special and seemingly unrelated legal areas, such as insurance and corporate law, in order to fulfil clients' requirements in a world where industrial insurance cases have become deeper and increasingly complex.

As a result of the financial crisis, Mr Fiedler and his partners have spent the past few years focused on defending directors and officers against insolvency administrators, as well as monitoring cases for insurance companies related to insolvency matters.

Mr Fiedler is regularly mentioned in various German press articles as one of the most renowned German lawyers for D&O and other insurance products.
