The Peruvian judicial system is known to be uncertain, therefore for many years Peru has been believed to be a difficult jurisdiction for re/insurers. However not many people know that the Peruvian arbitration system has become one of the most reputable conflict resolution forums in Latin America.
We will discuss other relevant aspects such as changes to claims handling and adjustment and applicable time periods.
We will discuss the legal framework of the exchange control system that has been in place in Venezuela. Specifically, we will go over each of the exchange rates which are currently applicable in place and the implications that having multiple exchange rates has for the payment of claims.
