This course, taught by Andrew
This noteworthy coupling takes on heightened significance in the context of an owner’s or builder’s status as an additional insured under a Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy because of more restrictive anti-indemnity statutes passed by many state legislatures in recent years. These important changes require the steadfast attention of the policyholder, the claims professional, and the attorneys who advise them.
Andrew has over 30 years of experience representing insurance companies, corporations, municipalities, and individuals in declaratory judgment actions, contractual disputes, bad faith claims, and appeals in state and federal courts across the United States. In addition to insurance coverage, his emphasis is on construction defect litigation matters. He has successfully litigated Illinois cases of first impression applying the business risk and false pretense exclusions. He also has experience with general liability, professional liability, commercial auto, property, business owner’s, and homeowner’s policies.
Drew has been rated an AV® Preeminent™ lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell, representing the recognition of the highest level of professional excellence by his peers. In 2018 and 2019, he was named a Leading Lawyer in Illinois in the areas of Insurance, Insurance Coverage, and Reinsurance Law.
After law school, Drew served as law clerk to the Hon. Edward J. Egan of the Illinois Appellate Court.

Andrew was good. Glad he went to Litchfield. (But I have nothing against Tressler...)
Since I practice primarily insurance, I take a lot of insurance CLE courses and they are typically the same thing over and over and are boring. Sometimes something new here or there. I was impressed at the spin this course had on additional insured coverage - this was something I had never heard before and was interesting. Thanks.
A very well presented and interesting discussion. A must for any business/real estate attorney
Great concise content
