New Appleman on Insurance: Current Critical Issues in Insurance Law

James S. Gkonos, vice chair of the Insurance Practice Group, and Braden A. Borger, an associate in the Litigation Department, published this article discussing the need to increase scrutiny and regulation of the financial markets in the wake of the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, and the government bailout of AIG.

The article explores recent proposals by state and federal agencies to exert regulatory authority over the largely unregulated areas of the intersection between the insurance and capital markets, the competing arguments in favor of state and federal regulation over these products, and the current evolution of the products being offered.
