Ethics of Communications with the Insurance Company (the Tripartite Relationship)
Created on May 21, 2018
The "tripartite relationship" between a policyholder/defendant, defense counsel, and the insurance company providing a defense sometimes leads to conflicts of interest, as when the insurance company furnishes a defense under a reservation of rights letter and some approaches to defense or settlement may militate against coverage. In addition, conflicts can be subtle, as when defense counsel is hesitant to pursue coverage against an insurer-employer.
