AIRROC London education day

We are pleased to work with AIRROC to bring an afternoon event to the London insurance community.

The seminar will include three panel discussions on:

  • Recent developments in US liability insurance law: the Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance
    Led by John D. LaBarbera, Partner, Kennedys
    The latest information on the controversial publication by the American Law Institute in its Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance. Our panel will discuss the central Provisions of the Restatement, reactions by various state Legislatures, and the impact that the Restatement has had and may have in future disputes involving the duty to defend, the duty to settle and the expanded scope of bad faith liability for insurers in the United States.
  • Updates in US arbitration practice
    Led by Michael J. Tricarico, Partner, Kennedys
    Addressing recent trends impacting insurance and reinsurance arbitration’s in the United States, including recent decisions on evident partiality and legislative actions addressing these decisions. We will also present a panel discussion on the differences in arbitrations between London and US. Finally, we will discuss AIRROC’s Dispute Resolution and Mediation Procedures (DRP and MP). The DRP and MP provide vehicles for parties with an efficient mechanism to resolve disputes. We will provide a discussion of the procedures and the benefits of pursuing these dispute resolution vehicles.
  • US wildfire exposures
    Led by Eric C. Scheiner, Partner, Kennedys
    The liability and insurance issues associated with the devastating losses related to the numerous recent California wildfires. Topics will include potential sources of liability, first party and commercial property insurance and reinsurance issues, as well as the potential impact of the PG&E bankruptcy on these matters.
