JOINT WINNER OF THE BRITISH INSURANCE LAW ASSOCIATION BOOK PRIZE 2012 This is the second, revised edition, of what has become and was described by the English Court of Appeal in C v D as the standard work on Bermuda Form excess insurance policies. The Form, first used in the 1980s, covers liabilities for catastrophes such as serious explosions or mass tort litigation and is now widely used by insurance companies. It is unusual in that it includes a clause requiring disputes to be arbitrated under English procedural rules in London but, surprisingly, subject to New York substantive law. This calls for a rare mix of knowledge and experience on the part of the lawyers involved, each of whom will also be required to confront the many differences between English and US legal culture. A related feature of the Form is that the awards of arbitrators are confidential and not subject to the scrutiny of the courts. Therefore, while many lawyers have been involved in litigating on the Bermuda Form their knowledge remains locked away. The Bermuda Form is thus not well understood, a situation not helped by the lack of publications dealing with it. Accordingly, those required to deal with the Form professionally are confronted with a lengthy and complex document, but with very little to aid their understanding of it. This unique and comprehensive work offers a detailed commentary on how the Form is to be construed, its coverage, the substantive law to be applied, the limits of liability, exceptions, and, of course, the procedures to be followed during arbitration proceedings in London. This is a book which will prove invaluable to lawyers, risk managers, and executives of companies which purchase insurance on the Bermuda Form, and clients, lawyers or arbitrators involved in disputes arising therefrom. '...deserves to be in the library of anyone who is, or is contemplating becoming, a party to a Bermuda Form arbitration...The authors, whom we have been associated with in some cases and opposed in others, have a wealth of experience with the Bermuda Form and the ability to share that experience with their readers in a clear and engaging style.' From the foreword by Thomas R Newman and Bernard Eder QC

The Bermuda Form excess insurance policy covers liabilities for catastrophes such as serious explosions or mass tort litigation. It is an 'occurrence reported' policy developed in the 1980's by two Bermudian insurance companies,Ace and XL, and it is now widely used by other insurance companies as well. It includes a clause requiring disputes to be arbitrated under English procedural rules in London but, very unusually, subject to New York substantive law. This calls for an unusual mix of knowledge and experience on the part of the lawyers involved, each of whom will also be required to confront the many differences between English and US legal culture.A related feature of the Form is that the awards of arbitrators are confidential and not subject to the scrutiny of the courts. Therefore, while many lawyers have been involved in litigating on the Bermuda Form their knowledge remains locked away. Thus, despite its considerable importance, the Bermuda Form is not well understood, a situation not helped by the lack of publications dealing with it. Accordingly, those required to deal with the Form professionally are confronted with a lengthy and complex document, but with very little to aid their understanding of it.This unique and comprehensive work offers a detailed commentary on how the Form is to be construed, its coverage, the substantive law to be applied, the limits of liability, exceptions, and, of course, the procedures to be followed during arbitration proceedings in London. This is a book which will prove invaluable to lawyers, risk managers, and executives of companies which purchase insurance on the Bermuda Form, and clients, lawyers or arbitrators involved in disputes arising therefrom.

Providing analysis and interpretation on the construction of the Bermuda Form, this second edition also addresses the dispute resolution process and covers the legal and practical issues which arise in the international arbitration of large and complex disputes under it. The work has been thoroughly revised to take into account the major changes in the governing New York law since the first edition, as well as significant English case law such as AstraZeneca v ACE & XL. This case has had major implications for the interpretation of issues such as the recoverability of defence costs, assertion and proof of legal liability. The resulting trend towards brokers and insurers drafting endorsements intended to clarify intent, and the nature and efficacy of these endorsements, are also analysed in this edition. The implications for policyholders and insurers of the ACE Insurance Form 007 are also discussed at length. Providing valuable analysis of disputes involving the Bermuda Form, particularly concerning arbitrations, this work gives access to an otherwise closed arena and is an indispensible guide even for experienced practitioners in this field.

The distinguished international lawyer Michael Pryles, who launched a meteoric career as an arbitrator after many years of teaching and writing on conflicts of law and other topics, has made a mark on arbitral law and practice that is recognized worldwide. In this book, over forty prominent arbitrators and arbitration scholars offer insightful essays on the thorny matters of jurisdiction, admissibility and choice of law in arbitration – topics which have long interested Professor Pryles and are of wide interest. Among the specific issues and topics examined are the following: • res judicata; • investment arbitration; • free trade agreements; • party autonomy; • application of provisional measures; • issue estoppel; • evidentiary inferences; • interim measures; • emergency and default proceedings; • the intersection of financing and jurisdiction; • consolidation of cases; and • non-contractual claims. Remarkable for its roster of highly distinguished contributors, this book is the only in-depth treatment of its subject. By turns thought-provoking and practical, it is bound to appeal to and be put to use by arbitrators and other lawyers who handle international cases. It will also prove of great value to global law firms and companies doing transnational business.

This book deals with the contractual platform for arbitration and the application of contractual norms to the parties' dispute. Arbitration and agreement are inter-linked in three respects: (i) the agreement to arbitrate is itself a contract; (ii) there is scope (subject to clear consensual exclusion) in England for monitoring the arbitral tribunal's fidelity and accuracy in applying substantive English contract law; (iii) the subject-matter of the arbitration is nearly always a ‘contractual’ matter. These three elements underlie this work. They appear as Part I (arbitration is founded on agreement), Part II (monitoring accuracy), Part III (synopsis of the English contractual rules frequently encountered within arbitration). The book will be a useful resource to foreign lawyers or English non-lawyers, English lawyers seeking a succinct discussion, and to arbitral tribunals.​
