Welcome to the third e-edition of the Edwards Wildman Insurance and Reinsurance Review.
On the US side, we report on the current landscape of concussion litigations; the status and possible easing of the expanded sanctions against Iran, which include prohibitions on providing insurance and reinsurance, or underwriting services, for sanctioned activities; ongoing coverage changes involving construction defect claims; and recent litigation and emerging claims issues involving long term care policies.
On the UK side, we report on the Supreme Court's examination of European and domestic case law in the "Alexandros T"; the High Court's decision on the construction and practical application of follow the settlements clauses; and last year's Commercial Court's decision on the duties of reinsurance brokers to remit funds to their principals.
On the Hong Kong side, we report on the decision of the Hong Kong Court of Appeal in which it considered whether insurers are deemed to have constructive knowledge of information available on the internet.
