Class Action Litigation Insurance Coverage: Avoiding Exclusions and Denials of Coverage
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide the class action litigator with a full arsenal to ensure that the client receives coverage from its existing insurance even in the event of a class action. This issue crosses substantive grounds as class actions are everyday occurrences in securities law, employment law, consumer law, and many other substantive areas.
- Types of coverage for types of class actions
- General policy (i.e. CGL)
- Specific policy designed for class action
- Typical disputes
- How many claims
- Claim dates
- Litigation management issues
The panel will review these and other essential matters:
- What types of coverage exist for different types of class actions?
- Are there steps that can be taken to minimize coverage disputes and their impact?
- What is the role of the litigator (not just the coverage counsel) in maximizing coverage?
