Butler Rubin Hosts Enterprise Act Program in London

CHICAGO, August 2, 2016 – Butler Rubin partners James Morsch and Teresa Snider will be co-hosting a program in London on September 20, 2016 with INCE & Co. to discuss the Enterprise Act 2016:  Best Practice in claims handling from US and UK perspectives.  When the Enterprise Act 2016 comes into effect next year, insurers and reinsurers may be liable for consequential damages if claims are not paid within a “reasonable time.”  Topics will include:

  • What lessons can be learned from the US experience of bad faith claims
  • What insights does US law give us as to what constitutes unreasonable behavior in claims management
  • What measures can claims professionals take to ensure they are not found to have acted unreasonable in England
  • What might be the impact of the new Enterprise Act measures on the lead/follow relationship and reinsurance
