Recent Legislative and Judicial Developments in Continental Europe Affecting the Casualty Insurance Industry
Introduction, Fall 2011
Recent Legislative and Judicial Developments in Continental Europe Affecting the Casualty Insurance Industry is the latest installment in Guy Carpenter & Company Ltd.’s (”Guy Carpenter’s”) legislative update series, designed to provide our international clients and markets with a concise overview of key trends in the Continental European legal environment. These issues have had an impact on insurers and reinsurers or are expected to have an effect in the near future.
Guy Carpenter has produced this report thanks to our ongoing valued cooperation with the insurance practice of law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek and its network of legal experts, acknowledged as leading insurance law practitioners in their respective jurisdictions across Continental Europe. The objective has been, as in previous reports in this series, to focus on the legislative or judicial developments that we consider to be of greatest impact in each selected country. It has not been our goal to produce an exhaustive review of the entire scope of legislative changes and judicial rulings of the past year in Continental Europe, but rather to highlight the main developments that we and our legal colleagues perceive as being worthy of attention, and where necessary, further in-depth study.
This issue of Recent Legislative and Judicial Developments in Continental Europe Affecting the Casualty Insurance Industry looks at a selection of 11 jurisdictions and covers the period May 2011 to September 2011. Beginning tomorrow, we begin daily posts of excerpts from the report on GC Capital Ideas.
