 In this issue: In this issue: Court cases and arbitration; Market Developments

1. Court cases and arbitration

  • England & Wales: Woodward v Phoenix: all’s fair in love and war?
    The Court of Appeal has recently addressed the question of whether a solicitor has a duty to point out a mistake by his opponent, in circumstances where not doing so could deprive a claimant of its claim altogether.
  • Australia: Insolvent but still not excluded
    The appeal decision of the Full Federal Court in AIG Australia Limited v Kaboko Mining Limited confirmed that an insolvency exclusion D&O policy was not triggered where a cause of action by a company against its former directors did not contain allegations of insolvency, notwithstanding that the directors’ actions arguably led to the company’s insolvency.
