This blog has been created and is maintained by the Reinsurance Industry Group of Carlton Fields LLP, a national law firm with a unique focus on financial services and a national reputation in high stakes litigation, financial regulation and product counseling. For more information on the firm and our practice, visit our firm's web site. We have offices in Miami, Florida, Simsbury, Connecticut and Washington, DC. Separate entries in this category of the blog provide additional information about our firm and its reinsurance practice.
This blog does not provide legal advice, but instead provides information for its readers about items of interest to those in the reinsurance industry or providing services to the reinsurance industry. It covers recent court decisions relating to reinsurance from US and UK courts, regulatory developments and selected news items relating to the reinsurance industry. In addition, due to the importance of the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) to reinsurance dispute resolution, we cover court decisions of interest relating to the FAA, even though they do not relate to reinsurance disputes. Occasionally, we will add a slightly more extensive entry as a Special Focus for a topic of particular interest. Two postings each week are selected as the “most interesting” ones of the week, and in addition to the normal substantive categories, are placed in the category titled Week's Best Posts.
Reinsurance Focus was created by, and is maintained by, attorneys active in our reinsurance practice, including:
- Roland C. Goss – A partner resident in our Washington, DC office, active in our reinsurance dispute resolution practice, Chair of our Reinsurance Industry Group, blog administrator and a blog contributor
- Sheila Carpenter – A partner resident in our Washington, DC office, active in our reinsurance dispute resolution practice, a certified arbitrator and a blog contributor
- Lynn Hawkins – An associate resident in our Washington, DC office, active in our reinsurance dispute resolution practice, a contributor and the blog's assistant adminsistrator
