Anatomy of an Art Claim: A Rembrandt is not a Refrigerator

1h 4m

Created on March 14, 2023




This course, presented by Jamie K. Baker, Of Counsel at Thompson Coe LLP, will address fundamental concepts for attorneys assisting their clients (whether insureds, third-party administrators, retained experts, or insurers) to resolve property damage claims involving fine art. Refrigerators are fungible items with replacement costs easily ascertained by both insureds and field adjusters. The value of a Rembrandt, or other one-of-a-kind artwork, is not so easily discerned. Fine art claims should be handled by knowledgeable (and qualified) property adjusters with the use of experts as warranted. This course provides attorneys with insight into specialized art industry verbiage, protocols, documentation, and policy provisions relevant to understanding such claims. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Break down of general property damage claim investigation protocols 

  2. Identify the similarities and differences between adjusting general property damage claims and fine art damage claims and address how to present this information to your client to set realistic goals

  3. Analyze specific options to consider and implement to help investigate and resolve fine art damage claims

  4. Provide practical suggestions to help manage all parties' expectations regarding claim resolution
