Miller Friel attorney Bernard Bell recently presented a continuing legal education program entitled Insurance Coverage Basics for the In-House Attorney. This course is designed to help in-house attorneys deal with risk management and insurance coverage issues.
Whether confronting unexpected losses, learning of a dispute, receiving a subpoena, investigative demand or service of a complaint, insurance often comes into the picture. This course describes the difference between first-party and third-party insurance, explains basic features of each type of insurance, covers basic insurance policy components and terms, identifies specialty insurance that should be considered, and offers practice pointers for in-house counsel, including steps you can take to preserve possible coverage.
