Disease Aware Issue 6

AWARE13/03/2015

Welcome to the sixth edition of Keoghs’ regular Disease AWARE magazine.

In our first Disease AWARE of 2015 whilst much of the industrial disease world waits with bated breath for the Supreme Court's decision in Zurich Insurance v International Energy Group; life really does go on.

This edition covers many of the subjects practitioners are grappling with daily and I hope that it proves useful to all the readership.

I look forward in anticipation to the new issues to be wrestled with in a post Zurich v IEG world.
