“We have really everything in common with America

nowadays except, of course, language”

(The Canterville Ghost - 1887)

  • Reinsurance subject to English law

  • No “legal dictionary” from which to import original law

  • Definition of the risks and peril insured and the period for which they are insured are fundamental to the scope of the reinsurance.

  • “As original” & “follow the fortunes” do not apply if outside the scope of reinsurance.

  • Presumption of “back to back” is “a sensible principle of construction [it] cannot be made into an inflexible rule of law” (Lord Mance)



Follow the settlements1
Follow the settlements

"All loss settlements by the Reassured including compromise settlements shall be binding upon the Reinsurers, providing such settlements are within the terms and conditions of the original policies and/or contracts and within the terms and conditions of this Reinsurance."
