Insurance for a better world


Event Information

The Evolving Liability Conference is an annual conference on themes and developments in liability law, litigation and underwriting and the implications for the re/insurance industry.


2021 conference

Long-term liability implications of pandemics

Most COVID-19 related claims and associated litigation have focused on property business interruption. But there are signs of a pick-up in claims in liability lines. Further out, industry practitioners are steeling themselves for liability claims as vaccines are rolled out and employees return to work as well as potential exposure from ‘long COVID’. Against that backdrop, the conference aims to explore the lessons liability insurers should learn from the latest episode in order to position themselves better to deal with future pandemics. This includes how to think about such (fat) tail risks like pandemics and the implications of likely societal shifts in light of heightened recognition of such uncertainties.

The 2021 conference is scheduled to take place in London on 27–28 October, hosted by Lloyd’s of London. It will be held in a hybrid format, accommodating in-person and virtual attendance. 

This event is by invitation only. We welcome interest from liability experts from the re/insurance industry, academia and the legal profession.
