Riley continues to distinguish itself as the industry leader in business interruption insurance. It provides a 360-degree view of the subject as well as practical, authoritative advice by combining insurance, legal, and accounting views.
This new version arrives at an important juncture. Following the UK Supreme Court's decision in the FCA test case on business interruption insurance, it has been completely updated and reconstructed. Riley discusses the significance of this ruling and the implications for policyholders affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
New features of the 11th edition include:
  • The chapters have been extensively restructured to increase accessibility and usability.
  • A new legal chapter discusses the Insurance Act of 2015, late payment damages, the 2021 FCA test case, and the consequences for causation under business interruption policies.
  • New analysis of parametric and pandemic/epidemic coverage.
  • Extensions of business interruption have been consolidated into a single chapter, treated in greater depth, and now dealt in a practical, alphabetical order.
  • Consideration of cyber risks and available protection.
  • Updated coverage of all threats, including riots and terrorism.
It also provides advice on policy wordings, coverage limits, and legal analysis of claims in the UK and US, with comparisons to other jurisdictions. Riley is the ultimate handbook for navigating through the complicated subject of business interruption claims, whether you're a legal practitioner, loss adjuster, or forensic accountant.
Other features of the title include:
  • An assessment of business interruption insurance practise, strategy, and method.
  • Expert analysis and practical examples provide extensive understanding from a legal, insurance, and accounting standpoint.
  • Pandemics, explosions, earthquakes, riots, malicious destruction, floods, theft, fire, and other risks are all covered.
