June 24, 2021
Partner Jennifer Saunders spoke during ALFA International’s 2021 Professional Liability & Insurance Virtual Seminar.
Defense Counsel: No Longer a Protected Group
A policy limits demand is made within 30 days of the claim being made where the policy is a $100,000 declining balance versus a policy limits demand made within 30 days of the claim being made where the policy is a $1.0 million declining balance. We know what the potential exposures may be to the insured, but what potential exposures are there to defense counsel? Is there a trend developing of suits against defense counsel by the insurer and what actions can be taken to mitigate these exposures? Participate in a roundtable discussion of this developing world of lawsuits against defense counsel and share recent experiences and ideas with your colleagues
