On July 7, 2015, Jason Reeves and José Umbert, of Zelle Hofmann’s London office, will co-present an LMA Academy master class titled, “Latin American Business Series - Legal Tour of Latin America.” Joining Reeves and Umbert for this presentation will be a distinguished panel of Latin American lawyers.

The discussion will include the following topics:

• the basic principles - Civil Law v Common Law

• the governing law of policies (and any language requirements)

• jurisdictional issues and the arbitration framework

• disclosure obligations and remedies

• 'condition precedent' as a recognized principle

• the existence of warranties as a concept

• limitation

• discovery and privilege.

The goal of the LMA Academy is to raise the profile of education in the Lloyd's market. This is delivered through a series of modular programs, workshops, master classes and alumni events that support learning and career development.
