The ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section’s Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee (ICLC) 25th Annual Midyear Meeting is a three-day program that draws attendees from around the country to hear from leading professionals on a wide range of topics facing the insurance industry. Cozen O'Connor attorneys will be presenting as well including Gary Gassman, Janet Davis, Debbie Minkoff, and Jonathan Walton all of the Insurance Coverage Department.
Gary Gassman, the 2015-2016 ICLC chair, will be moderating a panel "The Primary Dilemma: Excess Insurer Rights and Risks. Janet Davis will moderate the panel "Unlocking Mediation With Insurance Coverage—The Key to Success. Debbie Minkoff will participate on a panel "Déjà vu All Over Again: Related Claims and Notice Issues Under D&O and E&O Policies." Jonathan Walton will hold a Toolbox Luncheon Session, titled "Challenges to Level 3 and Its Progeny – The Insurability of Restitution and Disgorgement."
The conference begins Thursday afternoon with four outstanding panels addressing “hot” issues we all face in the coverage world – cyber liability, the ALI’s Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance, notice and related claims issues under D&O and E&O policies, and a special look back over the past 25 years of insurance coverage litigation moderated by four former ICLC chairs. The panels on Friday and Saturday will cover a wide variety of topics from the discoverability of communications between insurers and reinsurers in bad faith litigation to ethical considerations lawyers must consider in preparing expert witnesses in an insurance coverage case, to the latest developments on rescission of insurance policies. There will also be Friday toolboxes covering more than a dozen topics of importance to coverage practitioners.
This year's meeting will be particularly special as they celebrate the outstanding programming, service, and socializing the ICLC has enjoyed for the past 25 years as set the table for another quarter-century of outstanding work.
