The total future UK cost of asbestos-related diseases is £8-20bn. This represents 80-200,000 new insurance claims over the next 30+ years. With the UK insurance industry expected to face half this cost (£4-10bn), it is more important than ever that insurers, reinsurers, and “at risk” companies, together with their legal advisers, are prepared. In today’s asbestos arena, yesterday’s knowledge is simply not enough to win today.
This important C5 conference brings together the leading lawyers involved in some of the most important cases globally as well as respected medical and other asbestos experts, including ¬¬¬¬Lovells, DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary, AXA Insurance Plc, Royal & Sun Alliance, the ABI, Davies Arnold Cooper, SCP Soulie & Coste-Floret, Goodwin Proctor, McGivney Kluger & Gannon PC, Deloitte, Axiom Consulting Limited, JTW Reinsurance Consultants, McGuireWoods LLP, Brydon, Hugo & Parker and EMB.
