International Issues

Our lawyers have handled, or currently handle issues involving claims and losses across the world, including losses arising in Argentina, Canada, China, France, Indonesia, Korea, Mexico, and Thailand. We have substantial experience with property and business interruption losses arising outside the United States. We also have substantial experience with political risk insurance. And, we have engaged in arbitrations in Bermuda, Canada, and the London Court of International Arbitration—and been retained as experts to offer opinions on international insurance issues.

Our lawyers also have negotiated and litigated against underwriters at Lloyd’s, London, and against many of the world’s largest foreign insurers, working through the nuances of differences in cultural and business approaches, choice of law provisions, international discovery protocols and treaties, and the historical context of the development of standardized insurance policy forms and the development of different, but intertwined, international insurance and reinsurance markets.
