Overview


Providing analysis and interpretation on the construction of the Bermuda Form this book also addresses the dispute resolution process and covers the legal and practical issues which arise in the international arbitration of large and complex disputes under it.

Since the Bermuda Form was developed in response to the collapse of the US excess liability insurance market it has become an industry standard on which such insurance is written. Bermuda Form arbitrations have since been conducted in London or Bermuda over a period of more than 20 years and represent hugely detailed, complex, lengthy and expensive pieces of litigation. This book is a valuable guide even for experienced practitioners in this difficult area of the law, adding significantly to the nascent body of information on the analysis, interpretation and construction of the Bermuda Form.

The book includes the full text of the Arbitration Act 1996 and the Bermuda Arbitration Act.
