Research Handbook on international insurance Law and RegulationHaving an understanding of the legal and regulatory environment in the insurance industry has never been more important. The impact of new laws and regulation continues to be at the forefront of insurers’ minds and governments across the globe are in the process of designing new rules to regulate financial services.

This important new book aims to promote the very best thinking in this area.  It provides a valuable resource for anyone with a role to play in developing insurance law and regulation - from policymakers and regulators to academics and lawyers. The Research Handbook brings together important contributions from leading experts in their field, addressing core areas of legal and regulatory concern and focussing on many of the cutting-edge debates.

Edited by Julian Burling, formerly Counsel to Lloyd’s, and Kevin Lazarus, a solicitor at Lloyd’s, the book addresses subjects ranging from transnational regulatory recognition and electronic trading to principles-based regulation and takaful insurance as well as providing overviews of insurance law and regulation in important jurisdictions including the USA, EU, Japan, Brazil and China.  Lloyd’s is addressed in two chapter prepared for this book.

With more than 320 years of history, Lloyd's has witnessed and at times played its part in much of the legal and regulatory change that has taken place in the insurance sector. Lloyd’s has used that experience to make this book as relevant as possible to academics and practitioners actively engaged with international legal and regulatory development.
