Breakfast briefing: “Business interruption insurance and COVID19 – where are we now?” – 24th February 2021

BICBA will host a breakfast briefing on the topic of “Business interruption insurance and COVID19 – where are we now?” on Wednesday, 24th February 2021 from 8.30am to 9.30am.

Business interruption insurance is very much in focus at present, with the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to force many businesses to remain closed.

Issues relating to the construction of business interruption policies have been litigated in jurisdictions across these islands, with the UK Supreme Court recently delivering a significant judgment in Financial Conduct Authority v. Arch Insurance (UK) Ltd and others [2021] UKSC 1 and the Irish High Court giving judgment in Hyper Trust Limited v. FBD Insurance and three other related cases [2021] IEHC 78.

This breakfast briefing will consider the impact of those judgments, where they leave the law in relation to this area and their wider implications and application.

The breakfast briefing will be chaired by The Hon. Mr. Justice Peter Kelly, retired President of the High Court of Ireland (2015 – 2020) and will be addressed by Marcus Daly SC of the Bar of Ireland and Andrew Grantham QC of Kings Chambers.
