This important title is a product of many years of research of English, Australian and New Zealand law. It is particularly timely in light of law generated by the recent Christchurch earthquakes. However, the book is a comprehensive guide to all major aspects of insurance law in New Zealand, an indispensable reference work for all New Zealand law practitioners.

Key points:

  • First major work on insurance law in New Zealand for 22 years and draws from a body of insurance jurisprudence in excess of 1000 New Zealand cases.
  • The author team used the English edition of Colinvaux as a starting point, however significant parts of the work are quite different, reflecting the statutory and judicial variations in the New Zealand jurisdiction.
  • The work draws upon New Zealand insurance law and also sets out principles developed by the English courts and refined by the Australian courts.
  • Each chapter provides a detailed discussion on the law of insurance with a focus on modern developments in the law and market place.
  • The crisp, analytical style succinctly explains complex topics and covers the most recent developments that have transformed the law in this area.
