Insurers and reinsurers take great care in selecting the forum for the resolution of disputes with their (re)insureds. The Bermuda Policy Form is a classic example of this, requiring disputes to be arbitrated in either London or Bermuda.

An anti-suit injunction is an order restraining a litigant from commencing or pursuing proceedings in another forum. As such, anti-suit injunctions are a key part of an insurer’s armoury to protect and enforce contractual agreements to arbitrate. They also operate in relation to agreements as to jurisdiction.

This summary provides an overview of the English and Bermuda courts’ approach to anti-suit injunctions.
