In states such as New York that are known as being liberal forums for insurance coverage (having an abundance of cases addressing personal injury and property damage) many law firms have developed practices specializing solely in insurance coverage or insurance defense practices. However, this specialization can limit practitioners’ ability to be full-service advocates. Correspondingly, insurance carriers may not always able to turn to their trusted panel counsel to handle high-exposure commercial disputes.

This program, presented by Victoria Kennedy, Senior Counsel with Russo & Toner LLP, will discuss insurance coverage issues that arise in commercial matters, and practical tips that are relevant to insurance defense attorneys, commercial litigators, and claims adjusters.

Learning Objectives:

  2. Navigate the pitfalls of partial insurance coverage
  3. Develop your commercial practice to qualify for panel counsel to major insurance carriers
