Reinsurance Arbitration

In most reinsurance disputes, at issue is whether a loss falls under the terms of coverage contained in a reinsurance contract. Typically, a ceding company must disclose the nature of its business and what losses will be covered, regardless of whether facultative or treaty reinsurance is purchased. When the natures of certain lines of business are not disclosed, or when individual risks are covered through retrocession, parties may dispute who is responsible for indemnifying the ceding company.

At the law office of Alton C. Todd, our attorneys advise and represent clients in reinsurance arbitration involving:

  • Medical benefits carve-out plans
  • Excess of loss contracts
  • Quota share contracts
  • Surplus contracts
  • Disagreements among pool participants
  • Whether a loss event is covered
