On 15 January 2021 the UK Supreme Court delivered its judgment in the Covid business interruption insurance test case. The judgment concludes coverage arguments in litigation that initially spanned 21 types of policy issued by 8 insurers, but affected 370,000 policyholders and 700 types of policies issued by 60 insurers. The approach taken by the Court is likely to be influential in other jurisdictions and hence of considerable practical significance to lawyers in the Asia Pacific region.
Rachel Ansell QC (who acted for one of the insurers) will discuss the important legal and practical consequences of the decision for insurers and policyholders. Rachel will join speakers from O’Melvey & Myers LLP, Rajah & Tann, Drew & Napier, One Essex Court and Fountain Court Chambers.
