We invite you to join us at this seminar which will be presented by the lead product liability partners from Global Insurance Law Connect, the international network of insurance law firms. We will address the challenges of handling claims in our respective jurisdictions, including comparing approaches to liability issues (causation, what is a defect, burden of proof, handling investigations and potential defences), as well as considering jurisdictional issues.

Our speakers will also consider the impact of recent cases and look at emerging risks and challenges facing insurers.

We are delighted to welcome Charles Dougherty QC as our guest speaker, to address cases and strategy on jurisdictional and conflicts of laws issues, as well as the impact of Brexit.

Further speakers will be:

  • Jim Glennon, Foran Glennon, USA – Jurisdictional issues and causation in the USA
  • Robert Byrd – Byrd & Associates, France – Factual investigations and court appointed experts, legal issues
  • Giorgio Grasso – BTG Legal, Italy – Legal principles, the burden of proof, procedure and damages
  • Jim Sherwood – BLM, UK – Emerging technology risks and recent cases, macro-economic challenges

The event will feature a panel discussion with an open Q&A session.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Please note spaces are limited and therefore an allocation of two places per company will apply.

RSVP – Wednesday 30 August 2017 to [email protected].
