Peter MacDonald Eggers QC and Richard Sarll will be speaking on:

Warranties in the Age of The Insurance Act 2015

Insurance warranties are one of the most distinctive features of the law of marine insurance, yet they have long been viewed either as a potential source of injustice or a critical element of defining the risk. The Insurance Act 2015 sought to redress the imbalance between insurer and assured, but did it do so effectively, or has it created uncertainty or unfairness? This session aims to review the key legislative provisions, as well as their likely interpretation by the Courts, with a view to explaining what defences may be available where breach of warranty is in issue.
