Insurance, Reinsurance, and Surety Legal News

The National Law Review is one of the nation’s top resources of legal articles for insurance coverage, risk management, and compliance issues. Our coverage includes news on various types of insurance policies used by companies: directors and officers liability, environmental liability, commercial general liability (“CGL”), professional liability/malpractice, and property loss and business interruption. We also report on coverage or lack of coverage under insurance agreements involving construction detects, ERISA coverage, cyber insurance, entertainment and media exposures, excess liability and surplus lines, fidelity bonds, international exposures, life, health and disability coverage, reinsurance agreements and treaties; transportation coverage and workers’ compensation.

The NLR also reports on insurance disputes involving bad faith and extra-contractual liability; class actions, environmental remediation, insurance fraud,  subrogation, toxic torts, vanishing policy and premium situations. We feature discussion of emerging compliance and risk management issues such as climate change, cloud computing, new technologies, piracy and uprisings, social media usage, and tort reform.
