Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will instruct counsel when a company's D&O or professional liability insurance will cover the costs of responding to a formal investigative order, civil investigative demand, or subpoena. The program will discuss what policy terms and exclusions are often used to limit entity investigation coverage and recommend how to avoid inadvertently forfeiting coverage. The panel will also offer insights about when insurance may cover money payments required as a result of the investigation.

The panel will discuss these and other key issues:
- What is a claim under the relevant policies and when did it arise?

- What are the biggest mistakes policyholders make when attempting to have losses and claims covered?
