Dispute Resolution Analysis: Professor Dominic Regan of City Law School, London, considers the case Rosgosstrakh Ltd v Yapi Kredi Finansal Kiralama AO. The claimant got its own name wrong on a claim form and accompanying particulars. It was an insurer, and it had issued a protection and indemnity policy in respect of a vessel owned and managed respectively by the first and second defendants. When the vessel later sunk, the claimant paid out $1.55m. It subsequently sought to set aside the policy on grounds of material non-disclosure and issued these proceedings to recoup the outlay and secure a declaration of non-liability for any other losses that might be claimed.
