Event Synopsis:

As plaintiffs' attorneys become increasingly creative in enhancing their efforts to expand an insurer's duty of good faith and fair dealing, some are still swayed to maneuver insurance companies into committing acts that may lead to bad faith. Bad faith set-ups have been in the field since 1985, where Justice Kaus of the California Supreme Court observed: “It seems to me that attorneys who handle policy claims against insurance companies are no longer interested in collecting on those claims, but spend their wits and energies trying to maneuver the insurers into committing acts which the insured can later trot out as bad faith.”

With today's ever changing legal landscape, it is expected that cases involving bad faith set-ups are to increase and occur in the years to come.

In this live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will highlight the important features of “Bad Faith Set-Ups” in insurance litigation. Speakers will help the audience analyze and explore the mechanics of set-up allegations. They will also go beyond the basics and provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent case laws addressing this significant topic.

Key topics include:
- The Bad Faith Set-Up
- Legal Primer
- Common Tactics and Red Flags
- Recent Case Law
- Bad Faith Claims and Its Impact on Insurance Litigation
- How to Diagnose a Bad Faith Set-Up
- Best Strategies to Avoid Bad Faith Set-Up Situations
- Practical Tips for Insurers and Insurance Companies
