How Contract Conditions can Change the Liability of an Insured and why Brokers must advise Clients on this.

  • Wed 10 Jan 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Many policyholders sign contracts without realising they are potentially exposing themselves to liabilities that are not covered by their insurances. Often these contracts are signed in order to either win business or obtain key supplies, either way they are extending their liability beyond the potential protection provided by the liability insurer. Alan Chandler, one of the most popular presenters in the UK, will explore what Public and Products liability policies normally cover and what the position is at law when the policyholder extends their liability beyond this by signing certain contracts. The webinar will include exploring the consequences of the Insurance Act 2015 for failing to make a fair presentation of risk with regards to contract conditions, and how failure to guide policyholders around this matter could lead to a claim being turned down and all cover cancelled.

Understanding the different types of Company structure.

  • Tue 13 Feb 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

It is essential all insurance staff have a good understanding of the different types of way in which a company could be structured and failing to understand these structures could lead to wrong cover being put in place. This webinar, provided by Alan Chandler, will examine the difference between a sole trader, a partnership, a limited liability partnership, a private limited company and a public limited company. Alan will also explore the ways in which charities are formed. The leading case of Macaura v Northern insurance shows us that a policy will not respond if the insurance cover does not reflect the true structure of the company.
