January 30, 2014

On January 30, 2014, Jason Reeves, of Zelle Hofmann’s London office, will present a Lloyd’s Market Association Masterclass on the topic of "Problems with Civil Authorities Clauses.” The Masterclass, the first of LMA Academy's 2014 Wordings Series, will focus on business interruption and problems with civil authorities clauses (i.e. Interruption to the insured's business due to prevention of access to their premises by order of civil authority).

This session will review how the provision of civil authority coverage in many wordings may impact different loss scenarios. The key issues covered will be:

  • policy structure
  • specific policy language
  • policy exclusions
  • endorsements
  • the application of deductibles and waiting periods.

Attendees will benefit from a review of policy wording examples, applicable US case law which will be illustrated by a series of common hypothetical problems.
