HFW Seminar: Preparing for the Insurance Bill Seminar
HFW will be hosting a seminar to address the reforms that the Insurance Bill proposes to make to English marine and non-marine insurance law. The Bill aims to bring the law into line with commercial practice and, if enacted, will make some of the most significant changes to English insurance law in over 100 years. In particular, the common law duty of utmost good faith will be abolished and replaced by a duty of "fair presentation".
4 November 2014
We are delighted that David Hertzell, the Law Commissioner who has led the process resulting in the Bill, will be joining us at the seminar to discuss the background to and content of the Bill, the consultation and legislative process which led to it, and the potential for changes that may yet be made to the Bill before it is enacted.
HFW Consultant Peter Schwartz will discuss how the Bill would affect the placing of insurance and reinsurance business, the conduct of disputes and the remedies available to (re)insurers for breach of the fair presentation obligation.
HFW Partner Richard Spiller will be chairing the seminar and will discuss the process changes that (re)insurers, brokers and policyholders will need to implement in order to address the implications of the Bill.
