Insurance & Reinsurance

Lexis®PSL Insurance & Reinsurance: an online practical guidance product for contentious and non-contentious lawyers dealing with insurance and reinsurance matters.

Our content is written and structured to reflect how professionals would approach these topics in practice. For example, our topic tree begins with the regulatory environment and issues of authorization, which leads into administration and management, then disputes and resolution. We deal with all the relevant legal issues facing industry practitioners today such as Solvency II; the Insurance Act; Distribution; Cross-border transfers; the Senior Insurance Manager’s Regime (SIMR); Claims and Disputes; and hot topics such as Brexit; Cyber Insurance; and Insure Tech.

Our Practice Notes set out key principles supported by relevant authority and links through to more in-depth commentary and underlying sources in Lexis®Library, all of which are designed to speed up the task of advising on these areas of law.

LexisPSL Insurance & Reinsurance Law is supported by an in-house legal team with extensive experience in practice and dedicated to produce content specifically for busy practitioners. This experience, combined with extensive customer research, has shaped our practical guidance on Insurance & Reinsurance law issues. We have built and continue to develop our product with the assistance of leading Insurance & Reinsurance law experts.
