These range from large corporate transactions involving the insurance sector, such as the sale of AMI’s ongoing insurance business to IAG, to leading, precedent-setting insurance cases, such as our significant win in the Supreme Court in Steigrad v BFSL 2007 Ltd.
Steigrad v BFSL concerned the payment of defence costs under D&O policies and the judgement by the Supreme Court was described as a “landmark” and “ground-breaking” decision which has “dramatically changed the landscape for D&O (and E&O) indemnity insurance in New Zealand”. Read more here.
