Several recent court decision have expanded the overseas reach of the antitrust laws of the United States. This expansion presents unique problems for global insurance companies. When an insurer operating in a foreign country offers coverage to a U.S, insured, is it necessarily submitting to the complex rules and often harsh remedies of U.S. antitrust laws? Are there circumstances where the foreign insurer is beyond the reach of these laws?

Tom Bush, a partner in the antitrust and insurance/reinsurance practices of Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP addressed these issues in an article recently published in Mealey’s Emerging Insurance Disputes. The article can be found here.
