Important COVID-19 BI insurance judgments

Posted: 17/10/2022

The Commercial Court has today handed down judgment in three cases based on the popular Marsh Resilience wording: Various Eateries v Allianz, Stonegate v Amlin and Greggs v Zurich. Butcher J held that the BI losses aggregate around major government action. The Judge also adopted a narrower approach to causation of losses than advocated for by policyholders, and further concluded that credit needed to be given by policyholders for furlough payments.

Charles Dougherty KC and Timothy Killen, instructed by DAC Beachcroft, acted for Allianz
