This CLE webinar will explore insurance coverage issues related to the expanding breadth of opioid liability claims. Our panel will discuss coverage considerations, the increasing reach of these claims for those involved in the manufacture, distribution, prescription or payment for opioids, and the developing body of related case law.


Across the country, states and local governments are suing the manufacturers and distributors of opioids. These lawsuits raise important and interesting questions for insurers and policyholders about the scope of insurance coverage for these claims. Counsel for insurers and policyholders need to be prepared to address a range of cutting-edge coverage issues and make mission-critical recommendations.
