Tips for Defending against Litigation without Jeopardizing Insurance Coverage

Blank Rome-Hosted Live Webinar

Online Event

From SEC investigations and class action lawsuits, sex abuse allegations, cybersecurity and data privacy claims, to discrimination and harassment claims, diversity lawsuits, and COVID-19 losses, our speakers will provide practical tips for protecting necessary insurance resources, while aggressively defending against underlying litigation.

Please join attorneys from Blank Rome’s top-ranked, policyholder-only Insurance Recovery practice in this important conversation about insurance for both in-house counsel and the lawyers who defend them in high stakes litigation. Discussion will be followed by live Q&A.

Practical Tips Will Include:
  • When is the right time to notify insurers of a claim?
  • What obligations do you or your defense counsel have to cooperate or share information with the insurer?
  • Strategies for protecting the attorney-client privilege when communicating with “defending” insurers.
  • When must evidence that is uncovered in the course of investigating or defending a claim be provided to the insurer?
  • How much detail must be provided to an insurer that requests updates on the defense of the claim and does it matter if the insurer is paying defense costs?
  • When should you refuse to cede control of the defense and settlement of a claim?
  • What constitutes settlement negotiations for purposes of notifying the insurer and getting their permission to proceed?
  • Under what circumstances can an insurer refuse to fund the settlement of a claim and what are your options when that happens?
