Reinsurance Expert in Construction Surety Bonds
A reinsurance expert witness in construction surety bonds was needed for a breach of contract issue. The parties were providers of standard, customized and niche insurance products. The defendant took out a nonstandard surety bond from the plaintiff on a construction project for which the defendant had already issued a standard policy for lower level coverage. Plaintiff alleged the defendant took a big piece of the low level coverage and refused to reimburse the bond for the reinsurance policy.
