This webinar tackles construction-related insurance from both procuring and claims angles, and provides key points on market position plus the latest case law.

The Insurance Act 2015 has, since August 2016, been the primary piece of legislation for procuring insurance and managing claims. It fundamentally changed the status quo of the prior century, when the first piece of legislation came into force (Marine Act 1906) and the informal practices existing before then. Practitioners and the industry have been implementing its changes and some case law emerges as a result.

Balancing uncertainty and risk has always been at the heart of insurance; with special focus on the construction and engineering industry, there are particular opportunities and threats, as projects come in all shapes and sizes. The common thread is that each has a unique risk profile and so insurance must be tailored accordingly and underwriting cover is getting ever more sophisticated.
