Insurance aggregation issues

Date / time
18/07/2014
1:00 pm


Synopsis:

US courts have long grappled with insurance aggregation issues in a variety of contexts—from mass torts, products liability and sex abuse claims to securities litigation.  Dave Newmann, a partner from the Hogan Lovells Philadelphia office, will address the latest decisions and trends in this area under US law.

Meanwhile in England, last year saw two cases concerning aggregation of claims and losses which we feel have attracted less comment than they deserve. Stuart Hill, a partner in the London office of Hogan Lovells, will explain why the judgment in Aioi v Heraldglen poses more questions than it provides answers, and consider if Standard Life Assurance v ACE European Group & Others confounds the expectations of those dealing with “originating cause” aggregation wordings.
