U.S./Canadian litigation in a Post-COVID-19 world

In our first webinar of the ILG & LMA 2021 Young Professionals Boot Camp we explored how the pandemic has impacted insurance litigation across the U.S. and Canada. The session examined how the practice of law and the courts in both countries have adapted to the “new normal” 14 months later with an overview of the unique U.S. court system. A key focus was the status of coverage disputes and business interruption claims. What has changed and what has not? Learn how defense practitioners are adapting to plaintiffs’ new tactics in a post-COVID-19 world.

Our second webinar looked at the proliferation of ransomware attacks which is the biggest issue currently faced by the cyber insurance community. Learn more on the practicalities and best practices for managing these claims.

In our last webinar of the series we learned about the global risks associated with climate change, as well as a view from an Australian and UK perspective regarding climate change litigation and the emergence of ESG. Simon Colvin more specifically looked at ESG developments in a UK and EU context, as well as giving the UK and EU perspective on climate change litigation.
