Partner Andrew S. Boris has published an article in the December 2011 issue of Reinsurance Encounters, a CPCU Society Reinsurance Interest Group publication.
The article entitled, “The Honorable Engagement Clause and Support for the Arbitration Panel Award,” focuses on a recent case that illustrates how broadly an honorable engagement clause can be interpreted and how courts can rely upon such provisions to support the decisions issued by an arbitration panel. See Harper Insurance Ltd. v. Century Indemnity Co., Case No. 10 Civ. 7866 (USDC S.D.N.Y. July 28, 2011).
