Introduction

On 15 January 2021, the Supreme Court handed down its seminal judgment in the case brought by the Financial Conduct Authority to determine fundamental principles of insurance raised by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anyone who writes, buys, advises on, or handles claims under business interruption insurance should be aware of the Court's findings in this case.

The decision also addresses fundamental issues of construction and causation which are relevant to anyone concerned with any class of insurance.
