Key exclusions in Construction All Risks insurance

To understand the scope of cover under “all risks” policies it is first necessary to understand the exclusions, as it is those clauses that determine the cover provided. This session focuses on some of the key exclusions in Construction All Risks policies, including inherent vice; defects; wear & tear; corrosion & erosion; gradual deterioration; natural events; consequential loss; reasonable precautions; and machinery breakdown.

Reinstatement: when is it the appropriate measure of indemnity?

This session considers the current state of the law in light of the recent case of Endurance Corporate Capital Limited v Sartex Quilts & Textiles Limited [2020] EWCA Civ 308 – what circumstances are to be taken into account in determining whether an insured is entitled to be indemnified on the reinstatement basis?

Cover for COVID-19 under BI & other policies

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a devastating economic impact across most if not all sectors. Whilst the coverage available under business interruption policies has come under intense public scrutiny in recent months, the implications for other lines of business are yet to be fully understood. This session examines the extent to which policies other than BI might respond to losses caused by the virus.
