Resolving Disputes Over Multifaceted and Complex Notice Issues From Insurer and Policyholder Perspectives
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide insurance counsel with a review of the key differences between claims-made and occurrence policies with respect to providing notice of claims and failure to give notice or timely notice. The panel will discuss other key issues such as the insurer’s duty to reimburse defense costs prior to notice being provided, and notice provisions with respect to interrelated claims.
- How notice issues differ between occurrence and claims-made policies
- Notice of circumstance and a notice of claim
- Sufficiency of a notice of circumstance
- Interrelated claims
- Pre-tender defense costs
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- Does a demand or threat constitute a claim?
- When is the insurer responsible for pre-tender defense costs?
- How is the notice-prejudice rule applied in the context of claims-made policies?
