AIRROC WFH (Working From Home) Webinars

AIRROC Adapts to Serve the Legacy Insurance Sector

As part of our pledge to pivot and make sure that we can still bring relevant educational content to our members and the entire legacy sector, AIRROC is offering a series of webinars from our Corporate Partners on current and emerging issues. 

The Downfall of the Bellefonte Rule?

A discussion of the history and recent case law addressing reinsurance coverage for expenses and limits. Do the latest developments mark the end of the road for this decades-old rule?
The Bellefonte “family” of cases go back decades and many insurers and reinsurers are very familiar with them all.  This session will take a look at the history as well as the most recent developments with the US District court for the Southern District of New York squarely rejecting the Bellefonte Rule.  Take a look at how these developments could impact decisions in the future and the impacts to contracts and the follow the settlements doctrine.
