IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is being held in the Noel Cantwell Suite which is situated in the South Stand of the ABAX Stadium.

Cost: Free to members and non-members. Buffet lunch included.

Overview: This interactive and thought-provoking presentation focuses on the recent decision of the Supreme Court in ‘Versloot Dredging BV v HDI-Gerling Industrie Versicherung AG (The DC Merwestone)’ relating to fraudulent devices. There is also an analysis of how an insurer’s remedies will be impacted by this decision and the provisions of the new Insurance Act 2015. The background to the development of the law relating to fraudulent devices is looked at so as to provide the context for the Supreme Court’s recent decision and discussion throughout will centre on whether the Supreme Court has sent the right message to potential fraudsters.
