InView - Autumn/Winter 2016

The question of what Brexit means has rarely been out of the media spotlight since the referendum on June 23.

The question of what Brexit means has rarely been out of the media spotlight since the referendum on June 23.

In the latest issue of InView we have asked a cross section of specialist lawyers and guest contributors to assess the implications of the 'leave' vote for the insurance industry.

At the centre of the parliamentary debate is our guest contributor, Bob Neill, Conservative MP, barrister, and chairman of the Commons Justice Select Committee. In a thoughtful article, Bob explains why insurers need to make their voices heard on the type of Brexit deal they need. In response, Bavita Rai sets out some reasons for the risk-savvy insurance industry to be optimistic about future prosperity.

Following the High Court's recent ruling that the Government must go through Parliament to invoke Article 50 to leave the EU, our Brexit Group weighs up the arguments and likely outcomes.

In other features, Michael Ryley discusses Brexit's long term employment law implications, while Nick Richards examines the likely impact on cross border insurance claims.

The question of EU regulatory issues, coupled with constantly developing technology, makes drones a complex issue for insurers and Peter Forshaw evaluates the options in light of Brexit. In another enlightening article, Sean Crotty explains why insurance companies must continue to provide robust data protection that complies with European and international regulations.

Also in this issue, Rob Williams looks at the impact on holiday and business travel, while Phil James examines whether English commercial law, including marine sector contracts, can weather the Brexit storm. To conclude proceedings, there is also our regular Market Watch feature.

We do hope you find our latest issue informative as well as enjoyable.
