Course Details

Webinar Description:  A look at key decisions and issues from 2019 that reinsurance arbitrators and practitioners should be aware of.

Objectives:

  • Provide an overview of the most noteworthy reinsurance cases from the last year and a discussion of the implications of those cases.
  • Discuss recent decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court (and other federal courts) addressing the FAA and how those decisions may impact reinsurance arbitrations.
  • Report on the emergence of new claims arising from talc, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and sexual abuse, which have in some instances already led to reinsurance disputes and which are likely to lead to more.
