In today’s marketplace, companies face several high-risk concerns. Knowing the insurance available to protect against those risks can be essential. This seminar will discuss three important risks that are high on the radar for many companies today: environmental risks, preserving insurance through mergers and acquisitions, and risk associated with cyber liabilities and data breaches.
Environmental litigation can be expensive and risky. A correct assessment of the policies available to cover these liabilities can provide a company with a valuable safety net. For example, “long-tail” environmental claims can impact several years or even decades of insurance coverage. On the other hand, modern pollution liability policies can help protect against costly environmental claims.
Mergers and acquisitions can also give rise to high-risk insurance issues. For example, in certain circumstances, former directors and officers of a company may wish to purchase “run-off insurance” to protect them from claims connected with the former entity.
Finally, cyber liabilities and data breaches are a growing area of concern for companies. Insurance is an important asset to protect against losses connected with these events, and insurance coverage litigation over a data breach can have particular pitfalls.
In a two hour live CLE webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues surrounding High-risk Insurance Coverage Litigation for Lawyers in 2015 and beyond.
Key topics include:
• Insurance Coverage Litigation
• Environmental Risks and Insurance
• Mergers & Acquisitions Insurance Issues, including D&O Run-off Insurance and Successor Liability
• Cyber Liability and Data Breach Coverage Issues
• Recent Verdicts and Mitigation Strategies
• Claims and Bad Faith Management From the Insurer Perspective
• Arising Issues Regarding Additional Insureds
