Webinar | The Pandemic Protection Gap – A Look Back & Ahead on the Future of Business Interruption Insurance

Join our discussion about the current state of affairs of insurance coverage for loss of profits claims grounded on the confinement and other restrictions instituted during the Covid19 pandemic.

Our panel of experts will debate the current law of the land both from the insurers as well as the insured side – in Europe and the U.S., and share how companies have addressed claims in this environment. We will also analyze how the insurance market is regulated in select jurisdictions and offer an outlook what changes (if any) can be expected on both sides of the Atlantic to better address future crises.
