Setterwalls has successfully represented Alfa Laval in the Svea Court of Appeal in a case concerning right to indemnity under Alfa Laval's global all risks property insurance following an advanced theft of titanium and copper in Lund during Midsummer 2008.
The District Court had ordered the insurance company to make the requested claims payment of approx. MSEK 21.6 plus interest and costs. The District Court held that it constitutes "forcible or violent means" to cut open a security fence and that a company that engages a well-established security company for perimeter security and patrols of an industrial facility thereby cannot be deemed to have entrusted the goods within that area to the security company. The Court of Appeal has now upheld the District Court's decision.
Setterwalls' team consisted of Magnus Berlin (partner in charge) and Jens Skogler.
