What Every Litigator Should Know About Insurance and How It May Impact Your Case Strategy *In-Person at D.C. Bar*

March 13, 2019
Credit: 2.0 Credit Hours

Description: Litigators understandably focus on winning the case. But winning (or losing) can cause the client to incur unnecessary costs if the client fails to consider opportunities for insurance coverage, which may pay for the defense and for any settlement or damages awarded. Worse, litigators can “win” their way out of coverage for the client if not attentive to critical policy language. This class will identify what all litigators should know about insurance in general and how insurance can help defer the increasing costs of litigation and to fund the resolution of litigation. Topics will include:

• How to identify coverage that may apply to litigation
• Steps the insured should take to protect insurance claims
• The role of insurance companies in defending and settling claims
• Preserving attorney-client and work product privileges.
