This course is designed for the in-house attorney who does not regularly advice their client on risk management and insurance coverage issues. Whether confronting unexpected losses to company property, learning of a dispute that has arisen with a customer or vendor, receiving a subpoena or investigative demand from a governmental entity, or having a complaint naming the company as a defendant served, insurance often comes into the picture. This course will describe the difference between first-party and third-party insurance, explain basic features of each type of insurance, cover basic insurance policy components and terms, identify specialty insurance that should be considered, and offer helpful practice pointers for in-house counsel when they encounter situations where insurance coverage might be relevant, should be considered, and steps they can take taken to enhance and protect possible coverage.
At the end of this session/webinar, participants will be able to:
– Mins 1-5: Introduction
– Mins 5-15: Topic 1 – First-party and third-party (liability) insurance
– Mins 16-35: Topic 2 – Characteristics of liability insurance / policies
