Realizing the pronounced intersection between legal developments and a range of risk management responsibilities that can include claims management, employee-related issues, regulatory changes, cyber security, and others, RIMS, the risk management society™, released a new professional report, titled Top Six Legal Developments of 2018. The report highlights the most significant legal decisions of 2018 and explores their relevance to the risk management community.

Authored by Mark J. Plumer and Matthew Jeweler of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP and Mark Stacell, insurance risk manager for Equinor, the report reviews legal decisions from different levels of US court system. The decisions address a variety of insurance issues, including reservation of rights, rescission, directors and officers liability, and cyber claims.

"Today's risk professionals continue to see their roles and responsibilities expand, requiring new skill sets and greater, more in-depth knowledge of their organizations and external factors," said RIMS CEO, Mary Roth. "Understanding the key legal developments of the year that impact our industries can help risk professionals deliver more efficient and cost-effective solutions."
