Time for change: BLM guide to reform of commercial insurance law

The UK’s commercial insurance law is getting makeover in order to be fit for the twenty first century market. The existing regime – founded on a 1906 statute which itself codified case law from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries – is being refined to reflect modern business relationships and to rebalance rights and remedies when things go wrong.

BLM have significant expertise on the content of the Insurance Bill and took part fully in all the Law Commission consultations leading to this stage. We have published a short guide which sets out some of the key points in a brief and accessible format. We hope you find it useful, relevant and thought-provoking.
