Resolving Gaps in Wrap Insurance Coverage for Construction Projects



Date & Time

Start Date: 09/25/2019
Start Time: 1:00 pm
End Time: 2:30 PM


Fred Jacoby will be a member of this Strafford Publications panel, which will guide construction counsel in addressing the issues and pitfalls with wrap insurance programs, and the coverage issues that often arise — including coverage gaps and eroding or insignificant limits — from the perspective of both the insurer and the insured. The panel will discuss practical alternatives to transfer risk outside of the wrap-up, and how to trigger other entities and their insurers with a focus on priority of coverage.

They will review these and other key issues:

  • What are the primary issues and pitfalls with wrap insurance programs?
  • What are the most common coverage issues that arise?
  • How does policy language impact coverage and what coverage gaps could result?
  • How do wrap-ups relate to construction defect issues?
  • What coverages are typically included and which are generally excluded?
  • How are additional insured and contractual indemnification issues resolved?
  • What are practical alternatives to transfer risk outside of the wrap-up?
  • What are best practices on triggering other entities and their insurers?

After the presentations, the panel will engage in a live question and answer session with participants so they can answer your questions about these important issues directly.
