Written by an expert team of authors from Barlow, Lyde & Gilbert LLP, Insurance Law Handbook 4th edition provides a general, accessible guide to all aspects of insurance law. It considers most major business classes and reflects upon how the essential principles of insurance law relate to them. This excellent work combines a full range of information in one convenient time-saving source of reference.
The new edition has been structured into an easy to follow, logical 6 part format:
- Part 1 looks first at the legal principles relevant to the creation of insurance contracts;
- Part 2 considers the various parties who may be involved in the creation and operation of an insurance contract and how they go about their business and are regulated;
- Part 3 considers the legal principles applicable to the making of claims;
- Part 4 looks at the question of how insurance contract disputes can be resolved;
- Part 5 looks at the various types of insurance that are available in the market, from motor to space;
- Part 6 considers two separate regulatory topics, namely the regulation of sales of insurance products and insurance business transfers under the FSMA 2000.
Completely revised to include more legal analysis and specialist risk subjects, the new edition also covers all legal and regulatory developments including the impact of the Gambling Act 2005 on the requirement of insurable interest; the recently imposed industry-wide requirement of contract certainty; the new FSA regulatory regime to which brokers are subject; and important recent cases.
