This program will address important issues of law and practice concerning property and liability insurance coverage claims. The emphasis will be upon emerging issues, including (1) the possible forfeiture of coverage under directors and officers and professional liability policies based upon a company's handling and settlement of lawsuits, (2) legal issues concerning anti-concurrent causation clauses which drastically reduce coverage for property and business interruption claims, and (3) developments in the law of coverage for product liability claims. The presentation will also discuss the importance of choice-of-laws and forum selection in coverage disputes, and provide practice tips on the role of counsel in guiding coverage claims to successful resolution.
