Welcome to the first e-edition of the Edwards Wildman Insurance and Reinsurance Review.

On the U.S. side, we report on what insurers can do to avoid “institutional bad faith” claims; new federal guidance on fixed indemnity benefits under the Affordable Care Act; and contingent business interruption claims. We also make available a 50-state bad faith survey.

On the UK side, we consider the UK Supreme Court decision on legal advice privilege; a decision on the boundaries of a before-the-event (BTE) insurance policy; a decision on the proper forum for a dispute involving business placed in London for a U.S. insured; and a holding that apportionment does not apply to liability insurance.

Lastly, we consider the decision of the Hong Kong Court of First Instance on the transfer of long-term business under the Hong Kong Insurance Companies Ordinance.
