All Risks Property Insurance

The first edition of this book was the first major work to provide a comprehensive practical legal analysis of All Risks Property Insurance (ARPI). This type of property cover, developed over the last 30 years, now forms the basis of most large scale commercial property programmes. The book was well received and won the most prestigious British Insurance Law Assurance Book Prize soon after publication. It was the practical nature of the book that attracted the BILA book prize judges. The second edition continues and expands upon the same theme, namely to express the law in an accurate yet easy to read format. Again the text is peppered with practical examples of problems and opinions are expressed as to how certain parts of these policies can be improved. To set the scene, an overview of general insurance principles is provided but specifically the type of policy. For example, when dealing with the duty of utmost good faith, the text specifically identifies those matters which might be considered to be material facts when a property risk is placed. This chapter together with others have been re-written. In particular, there has been a good deal of case development in the area of fraud and the continuing duty of good faith. Certain additional exclusions and conditions are added to the text. For example, the Year 2000 issue is considered. Chris Lemar of PricewaterhouseCoopers has contributed to the chapter on business interruption, adding practical examples from his experience in this area. Most multi-nationals would expect their property programmes to be based upon ARPI. These property programmes usually have a global scope and they are considered at some length in an expanded chapter on global programmes. As before, the book draws examples from all common law jurisdictions including Canada, the US and Australasia. Although many of these authorities are not binding upon English Courts it draws together jurisprudence on property policies and many of these examples are relevant to specified perils policies as well as ARPI. As such the book should appeal not only to a UK readership, but also to other common law jurisdictions.

Over the past two decades, there have been a number of important developments in the areas of liability, property, and life and health insurance that have significantly changed insurance law. Accordingly, the Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law has been substantially rewritten, reformatted, and refocused in order to offer the insurance law student and practitioner a broad perspective of both traditional insurance law concepts and cutting-edge legal issues affecting contemporary insurance law theory and practice. This edition not only expands the scope of topical coverage, but also segments the law of insurance in a manner more amenable to study, as well as facilitating the recombination and reordering of the chapters as desired by individual instructors. The Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law includes new and expanded treatment of important insurance law developments, including: • The critical role of insurance binders as temporary forms of insurance as illustrated in the World Trade Center property insurance disputes resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001; • The continuing debate between "legal formalists" and "legal functionalists" for "the heart and soul" of insurance contract law; • What constitutes a policyholder's "reasonable expectation" regarding coverage; • The current property and liability insurance "crisis"; • Risk management and self-insurance issues; • Emerging, and frequently conflicting, case law concerning the intersection of insurance law and federal anti-discrimination regulation; • Ongoing interpretive battles over the preemptive scope of ERISA; • The United States Supreme Court ruling that a California statute attempting to leverage European insurers into honoring commitments to Holocaust era policies is preempted by the Executive's power over foreign affairs; • The State Farm v. Campbell decision, which struck down a $145 million punitive damages award in an insurance bad faith claim as well as setting more restrictive parameters for the recovery of punitive damages; • New issues over the dividing line between "tangible" property typically covered under a property insurance policy and "intangible" property, which is typically excluded - an issue of increasing importance in the digital and cyber age; • Refinement of liability insurance law regarding trigger of coverage, duty to defend, reimbursement of defense costs, and apportionment of insurer and policyholder responsibility for liability payments; • The difficult-to-harmonize decisions concerning when a loss arises out of the "use" of an automobile; • Insurer bad faith and the availability, if any, of actions against a policyholder for "reverse bad faith"; and • The degree to which excess insurance and reinsurance may be subject to modified approaches to insurance policy construction.
