When Do You Call a Coverage Lawyer?
All too often, the insurance coverage lawyer is an afterthought in the litigation process. The players are familiar - plaintiff's personal injury or class counsel, defense counsel retained by the policyholder or primary insurer, and claims representatives for the primary and excess insurers. The periphery includes the policyholder's general counsel or risk manager and the excess insurers' monitoring counsel. Why would anyone call a coverage lawyer? This panel will focus on recent experiences in which coverage counsel, both on the policyholder and insurer side, were retained to play an important part in the litigation and settlement process.
