New York and London partner Tom Dawson spoke at the Inaugural Insurance Regulation Forum in New York City on Wednesday, Feb. 27.
Tom, a partner in the firm's Insurance practice team within the Corporate & Securities Practice Group, gave opening remarks and participated in two panels.
In the first, “Collateral Rules,” panelists discussed whether the U.S. regulatory environmental is anti-cross border reinsurance, how regulators ensure efficiency in state-based harmonization of reinsurance regulation, and whether the NAIC model framework is sufficient to meet the EU/US goals on regulatory recognition. Tom also moderated the “Any Other Business” panel, which featured an interactive open discussion between conference delegates and a panel of leading industry experts.
The firm sponsored the forum, which drew delegates from Bermuda, Europe and the US. The event featured panels addressing the insurance regulatory implications of Superstorm Sandy, Federal regulatory issues, reinsurance regulatory initiatives, solvency modernization in the US, national and international debate about systemic risk, among other topics.
