Professional privilege and without prejudice communications

Daniel Breier – Director – Insurance Litigation

Maintaining legal professional privilege over communications and reports following an incident is as important as gathering all relevant information. Questions frequently arise as to whether legal professional privilege can properly be asserted over reports drafted by in-house lawyers. In addition, recent court decisions have limited the protection ordinarily afforded to without prejudice communications made in a genuine attempt to resolve a dispute between parties. This session will combine a high-level overview of our law, focusing on important recent developments, and will be especially beneficial to internal legal advisors, risk managers, loss adjusters, claims professionals and anyone wishing to improve their knowledge of this subject.

Registration from 15:45, the seminar commences at 16:00
Kindly join us for some drinks and networking after the session.

The DarkNet

Rohan Isaacs – Director and Team leader: Technology & Intellectual Property
Kerri Crawford – Senior Associate: Technology

The Dark Net is a part of the internet that is not accessible by normal search engines and browsers. Websites on the Dark Net are accessed using software which anonymises users’ identities and encrypts information at multiple layers. The anonymity appeals to activists, political dissidents and whistle-blowers, particularly in repressive societies. Unfortunately terrorists and criminals use the Dark Net for the same reason.

We will take you through some of the virtual markets facilitating unlawful activities such as the sale of drugs, weapons, stolen goods and assassination services and show you why policing this part of the internet is a particularly difficult task for law enforcement.

Registration from 08:15, the seminar commences at 08:30
Kindly note that breakfast will be served from 7:30.

A short update on recent decisions affecting General Average claims

Andrew Robinson - Head of Transport for Africa and Practice Group Leader for Disputes

General Average claims continue to exercise (or vex!) the minds of marine brokers and insurers. Not only is the concept a fairly difficult one to grasp, but the rules and procedures relating to the securing of claims for GA contributions, the release of cargo and the defending of claims present their own challenges. Three fairly recent decisions have made things a little easier.
