Can we vaccinate? Yes, we can.
MinterEllisonRuddWatts, October 2021

COVID-19 vaccinations are now on the list of topics to avoid at dinner parties (which are still virtual for those of us in Auckland). Globally, we have seen COVID-19 vaccinations create mixed emotions around civic responsibilities and bodily autonomy, and spark protests in breach of many “stay at home” orders.

MinterEllisonRuddWatts, September 2021

Responding to an unprecedented disruption in trading, firms naturally turned to their business interruption (BI) policies for protection. Given the number of claims and the distinctiveness of the COVID-19 circumstances, it was unsurprising that many of these claims demanded referral to the courts for resolution. In this article, we briefly summarise the status of COVID-19 BI cases around the world...

Customer Vulnerability: Immediate Priorities of the FMA
MinterEllisonRuddWatts, September 2021

On 2 September 2021, the FMA published an updated information sheet on its expectations for providers of financial services in relation to customer vulnerability practices (Information Sheet). The FMA acknowledges there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to developing and embedding processes and practices related to customer vulnerability. Instead, firms should tailor their responses to reflect their scale, size and complexity, and consider the likelihood of their customers experiencing vulnerability...
