When you stop and think about it, outside of matrimonial law or estate practice virtually any other type of civil litigation revolves around insurance. Moreover, most types of corporate "deals" also involve insurance. Commercial insurance is the key to commerce, as it is the most important tool in managing the day-to-day risks of running a business. Notwithstanding its significance, most attorneys - be they litigators or corporate lawyers - lack even a fundamental understanding of insurance coverage law. Many make common assumptions that aren't correct. Even experienced personal injury litigators are often caught in the trap of just assuming the "carrier" will resolve the dispute without ever considering whether there is coverage for the dispute in the first place. Many businesses take insurance for granted and are deeply shocked when their commercial dispute is not covered by insurance.

This program is intended for people who are not coverage experts but who would gain from increased knowledge about coverage. The aim is that you will leave this course with a basic understanding of what is in an insurance contract, what the common issues are, how to read an insurance contract and how to find the answers to particular coverage questions. It is not intended to be an advanced course on any particular insurance topic. Indeed the outline is very broad and if I were to go into depth on any of these issues, this could easily become a year long course. However, you should leave this seminar with a much better understanding of the things to watch out for in coverage and how to better advise your clients on their insurance needs and their risks.
