Whitbread's Claims Manager Receives Women In Insurance Award for Excellence 2019
Whitbread Insurance Brokers are excited to announce our very own Renee Cassidy as the recipient of the Women In Insurance Award for Excellence, 2019.
In a unanimous decision, the NSW Court of Appeal has handed down Australia’s first major decision on access to directors and officers
It was ruled that insurers can pay defence costs under D&O policies before any third-party claim on the insurance policy proceeds.
The decision, relating to the collapse of plantation company Great Southern, is a victory for insurers who sought the right to pay legal costs before damages or compensation that could become payable under shareholder class actions.
The Court’s decision provides greater certainty to directors that D&O and Management Liability insurers can advance legal defence costs before a judgement or settlement.
The Victorian Branch of Women in Insurance presented Renee with this prestigious award at their annual AGM in August.
