Who's Who Legal Insurance & Reinsurance: Lawyers

Mr Woloniecki is head of litigation at ASW. Mr Woloniecki has appeared as counsel before the Supreme Court of Bermuda and Court of Appeal for Bermuda in over 55 cases. In addition to his practice as an advocate before the Bermuda courts, he has an extensive international arbitration practice, and has accepted appointments as an arbitrator in international arbitrations and domestic (Bermudian) arbitrations. As counsel and arbitrator, he has participated in arbitrations held in London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bermuda and the United States. He has acted as an expert witness (on Bermudian and English law) in numerous cases before United States courts and arbitration tribunals. Peers agree that he has played an important role in the growth of Bermuda as a location for hearing reinsurance disputes. Jan’s most notable and most extensive piece of writing is his published book The Law of Reinsurance in England and Bermuda (fourth edition, Sweet & Maxwell). Co-authored with Terry O’Neill, his book offers a comprehensive guide to both the substantive law and practice in this complex area of law. It is a definitive reference source for practitioners, covering general principles of the reinsurance contract, examining particular reinsurance agreements in detail, and all relevant areas of agency law. Procedural issues in reinsurance litigation and arbitration are also covered. According to one international lawyer, Jan Woloniecki is “quite possibly the brightest and most able insurance lawyer on the island. He has the rare ability to combine good practical knowledge with a really sound understanding of the law and excellent oral presentational skills.”

WWL says: Jan Woloniecki is “an incredibly effective and knowledgeable practitioner”.
