Now in the event’s third year, Legal Business is delighted to welcome everyone back to the Financial Regulatory and Disputes Summit on 1 December, after a year’s hiatus.
As usual, the reception will bring together leading disputes specialists from private practice, the judiciary, regulators and in-house legal departments at financial services companies in what promises to be an enjoyable and engaging event.
We are pleased to join the Summit’s sponsors including Serle Court, One Essex Court, Norton Rose Fulbright, Boies Schiller Flexner, RPC and 3VB.
Jeffrey Gruder QC and Jeremy Brier will be speaking on “Covid-19 business interruption insurance disputes: Looking back and looking forwards.” The Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in January 2021 on Covid-19 business interruption (FCA vs Arch) went some way to providing answers to policyholders and insurers in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. However, it left some pressing unresolved issues. In this fireside chat, we discuss the salient details of the Judgment, its implications for other policies; its approach to causation; and how this could play out in future cases.
