This step-by-step in-house programme is a guide to the world of reinsurance wordings for lawyers and executives who are new to the industry or would like to refresh their knowledge and skills.
In reinsurance contracts, it is quite common practice for the wordings, which define the obligations of the parties, to be neglected. This results in the contract being unclear about the relationship between the reinsured and the reinsurer. Unfortunately, issues such as these often cause problems between the parties in later years and can lead to costly disputes. During this training programme all the important issues which need to be taken into consideration at the contract negotiation and drafting phase will be highlighted.
