The Law of Reinsurance

Third Edition

Colin Edelman, QC and Andrew Burns, QC

  • A specialist and focussed text on reinsurance law, uncluttered by repetition of general insurance principles
  • Offers comprehensive but concise coverage of issues from definition and purpose to types of reinsurance and analysis of controversial and undecided issues
  • Guidance provided on contractual principles and interpretation of terms in the reinsurance context, obligations, rights and liabilities of the reinsurer and reinsured, and choice of law
  • Written by leading reinsurance specialists with years of experience in litigation and arbitration, providing readers with access to their understanding of difficult topics

New to this Edition:

  • Considers the impact of the Insurance Act 2015 on reinsurance litigation and arbitration - particularly reinsurance non-disclosure, warranties and remedies
  • Discusses reinsurance spiking and allocation to policy years, ascertainment of loss, aggregation and the duty of good faith in exercising a reinsurer's discretion
  • Covers a number of significant cases since the last edition including Equitas v Municipal Mutual Insurance, Axa Versicherung v Arab Insurance and the Supreme Court's analysis in Teal Assurance v WR Berkley Insurance
