A BIBA broker's guide to case law: Legal update

This supplement summarises a selection of major recent court cases touching our industry to give you a view of the high profile issues that brokers need to be aware of. As an industry, we need to be ready to react to case law as it happens as judges’ decisions, together with legislation and regulation, govern what we do.

What the decisions in this supplement demonstrate is that brokers continue to play a key role in helping clients manage their risk, whether this is continuing to be alive to the ever-present risk of asbestos, or helping clients manage their liability exposure in the wake of record-breaking personal injury compensation claims.

•    Eurokey Recycling v Giles Insurance Brokers.
