Claims-Made Insurance Policies in Italy: The Domestic Story and Suggestions from the UK, Canada and Australia  

by Francesco Delfini

Liability insurance contacts can be divided into two main categories: loss occurrence based and claims-made based.

This reception has posed various issues in the domestic legal system on which the Italian Supreme Court has recently ruled several times.
