Course Materials

This CLE course will provide counsel to insurers and policyholders with a review of coverage and allocation issues that arise when settling claims with multiple insurers. The panel will outline strategies for both sides to resolve disputes arising from concurrent insurance.


For most business insurance coverage and some individual coverage, there is often concurrent coverage for a particular claim. The rules allocating responsibility between and among insurers in cases of overlapping or multiple coverage are often unclear.

Settlement with multiple insurers raises a number of complex issues such as allocation among those insurance policies triggered by a loss, priority of insurance coverage, exhaustion issues and applicability and payment of SIRs and deductibles.

Policyholders must consider coverage-in-place agreements, and a host of other issues that arise when one or more of the insurers starts a declaratory judgment action or arbitration.

Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance attorneys analyzes the coverage and allocation issues that arise during settlement of claims involving multiple insurers, and provides strategies for both insurers and policyholders to resolve settlement disputes arising from concurrent insurance.



  1. Allocation issues
  2. Priority of coverage
  3. Exhaustion of policy limits, SIRs and deductibles
  4. Best practices for insurers
  5. Best practices for policyholders


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What are best practices for resolving allocation issues?
  • How are additional insureds and priority of coverage issues best handled?
  • Are there exhaustion issues if only some carriers are willing to cut a deal?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
