Welcome to the Spring edition of the ITIC Claims Review, which is published to coincide with the March 2011 meeting of ITIC’s Board of Directors in Buenos Aires, Argentina. ITIC periodically publish selections of cases, twice a year in this publication, and more specifically in the Wire, which have been recently handled by the Club. This edition provides a general selection of claims ITIC has resolved over the last year. We hope that these ‘case histories’ will be of interest to Members and help them identify potential claims exposure.
