Event Synopsis:

Under the different jurisdictions in the United States, insurance companies are compelled to deal with the legalities of good faith, focusing on insurance contracts, and settling legal disputes that may potentially occur. However, with the current legal challenges, statutory changes, underwriting issues and violations, faced by the insurance industry, serious problems have been brought to liability claims.

With the challenges and misconceptions that may potentially arise when resolving coverage disputes, insurers should be careful in responding to policy limits and settlement demands to avoid potential bad faith claims.

The Knowledge Group assembled a team of thought leaders who will help the audience understand the most important aspects of Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith Litigation. This live webcast will provide an in-depth analysis of the risks and pitfalls on Insurance Litigation. Speakers will also go beyond the basics and help the audience in exploring major opportunities and managing challenges surrounding this significant topic.

Key topics include:

· Insurance and Bad Faith Litigation: Underwriting Issues and Settlement Practices
· Regulatory Violations
· Complex Coverage Issues and Policy Limits in Liability Claims
· Practical Tips: How to Overcome Bad Faith Opportunities and Challenges
· Updates and Developments
