Fields Howell’s work on contingency risks continues to expand.  We have handled a wide range of contingency claims both in the United States and abroad. We have handled claims involving cancellation for:

  • Concerts
  • Sporting Events
  • Entertainment Events
  • Conferences
  • Filming

Contingency cases often center around basic tenants of insurance law, but Fields Howell’s experience and familiarity with the specific forms used in the London and European markets sets us apart.  In Defeat the Beat, Inc. v. Underwriters at Lloyd’s London, 669 S.E.2d 48 (N.C. App. 2008), the North Carolina Court of Appeals analyzed the “net loss” provision, adopting our argument that the insured had not established a covered loss occurred in excess of the amount tendered.  In addition to defending insurers on these risks, we are frequently asked to assist with wordings during the underwriting process.
