2016 Plenary Session
The LCSG offered a wide-ranging programme during its session in Charleston. Reflecting the US venue, the opportunity was taken to look back at the 09/11 WTC loss and there was also a look at jurisdictional defences in the US. Alongside these was the traditional look at major losses incurred by the market in the past 12 months, the impact of extreme weather events on accumulation, sub-component manufacturers liability exposures, a multi-jurisdictional look at a GA loss, mental anguish claims and an examination of insured parties in a hull claim. The session also included a legal round-up by the Union’s Legal Adviser.
