The Insurance Committee 

The Insurance Committee seeks to serve as a regional forum for lawyers and insurance professionals to share knowledge, experience and ideas, and to harness the insurance expertise in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Committee was formed in 1999. Since then, the Committee has published newsletters, held seminars at the annual conference, and hosted events to help connect lawyers and insurance professionals. The themes for the Committee’s seminars at the annual conference are topical, and are also relevant to the general theme of the  conference. These seminars serve to demonstrate the integral role of insurance in commercial life in the Asia-Pacific region. The Committee always welcomes participation from all lawyers and insurance professionals.

Themes of past seminars organized or co-organized by the Committee have included:

  1. borderless insurance
  2. global reinsurance
  3. directors' and officers' liability insurance
  4. managing errors and potential liabilities
  5. captive insurance
  6. regulatory and policyholder protection issues
  7. insurance issues arising from a multi-jurisdictional listing exercise
  8. regulatory and other issues pertaining to pension mis-selling
  9. strategies for resolving insurance disputes
