The LCSG of the IUAI comprises leading legal and claims practitioners from the aerospace insurance and reinsurance industry. The group meets on a regular basis to discuss relevant legal and claims related issues currently facing the aerospace sector. Through the vast experience of its members, representing various geographical regions and specialities, the group identifies developing claims trends and legal issues, and also provides practical feedback from their everyday involvement in the handling of aerospace claims.

The group includes a Legal Advisor who helps to ensure that the IUAI operates within the appropriate legal and governance frameworks and who also produces a quarterly legal update to all members highlighting recent legal developments of relevance to aerospace insurers and reinsurers.

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.
