The Bermuda Form (2nd Edition): Interpretation and Dispute Resolution of Excess Liability Insurance

David Scorey QC, Richard Geddes, Chris Harris


The Bermuda Form, Interpretation and Dispute Resolution of Excess Liability Insurance, Second edition Providing analysis and interpretation on the construction of the Bermuda Form, this second edition also addresses the dispute resolution process and covers the legal and practical issues which arise in the international arbitration of large and complex disputes under it. The volume has been thoroughly revised to take into account the major changes in the governing New York law since the first edition, as well as significant English case law such as AstraZeneca v ACE & XL. This case has had major implications for the interpretation of issues such as the recoverability of defence costs, assertion, and proof of legal liability. The resulting trend towards brokers and insurers drafting endorsements intended to clarify intent, and the nature and efficacy of these endorsements, are also analysed in this edition. The implications for policyholders and insurers of the ACE Insurance Form 007 are also discussed at length. Providing analysis of disputes involving the Bermuda Form, particularly concerning arbitrations, this book gives access to an otherwise closed arena.
