Course Materials

This CLE course will provide guidance to in-house counsel for identifying the corporation’s insurable business risks, evaluating appropriate insurance coverage, and evaluating the likelihood of business insurance claims. The panel will discuss corporate vulnerabilities counsel typically identify when negotiating contract terms and deals, hiring third-party suppliers and vendors, overseeing service agreements, or responding to investigations or lawsuits.


In-house counsel play a critical role in helping the corporation identify business vulnerabilities, ensure adequate insurance coverage, and evaluate the likelihood of business insurance claims. Attorneys have the unique ability to scrutinize insurance contracts and claims from a legal perspective that can enhance the traditional risk management function in corporations. In-house counsel’s expertise and legal judgment are also key in determining when to grant customers, vendors, or other transactional third parties waivers of subrogation or additional insured status based on their analyses of potential contractual and claims-based risks.

In-house counsel also provide a unique and integral commercial perspective to litigation counsel defending claims that arise against the corporation. Having an understanding of potential litigation risks at the negotiation stage can help counsel facilitate claims resolution and potentially reduce costs.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the in-house counsel’s role in identifying and mitigating insurable risks and evaluating the likelihood of business insurance claims.
