Law firm MJM Limited will host Insuralex — a worldwide network of independent insurance and reinsurance lawyers — in Bermuda from November 6-9 for its Mid-Year Meeting.

MJM is the Bermuda member of Insuralex and this is the first time the meeting has been hosted on the island.

Devereux Chambers, with whom MJM Barristers & Attorneys has strong links, are the guest speakers at the seminar on November 7 at XL conference centre and will address the audience on Aggregation in the Reinsurance Context and the Insurability of Fines and Penalties. 

Speakers include: Colin Wynter, QC (Chambers & Partners Insurance Silk of the year 2012); Richard Harrison, Leading Insurance Junior; and Andrew Burns, Leading Insurance Junior and co-author of the Law of Reinsurance with Colin Edelman QC, published by Oxford Press.

Alan Dunch, director, MJM Limited, said in a press release: “It is a great honour to be hosting the Insuralex Mid-Year Meeting in Bermuda. 

“The group was attracted to Bermuda because of the island’s reputation as an insurance and reinsurance centre. We welcome members of the local insurance and reinsurance community.”

Tim Frith, who was a member of Devereux Chambers before joining MJM and remains a door tenant of the set, said: “We very much hope that members of the industry will attend and I encourage them to contact me for more details. 

“The presentation and cocktail party will be an opportunity for the Bermuda insurance and reinsurance community to mingle with insurance and reinsurance lawyers from around the world.”

Members of the insurance and reinsurance community interested in attending the presentation should contact Tim Frith on 294-3627 or tfrith@mjm.bm. 

The event will be followed by a cocktail party at Royal Bermuda Yacht Club from 7-10pm.
