Ten Essential Steps to Maximizing Your Insurance Claim - Robert M. Horkovich
April 24, 2017 from 1:45 PM - 2:45 PM
Thereis a lot more to obtaining full insurance recovery after a loss than simply buying the right policies in the first place. This session provides a roadmap to the entire process of getting a claim favorably resolved, from giving notice to fully documenting the settlement once achieved. Key topics include fully quantifying losses, avoiding standstill agreements, setting target demands and negotiating a claim). One focus will be aligning incentives: full, prompt documentation of a claim may aid the insurance company's own reinsurance claim and so expedite settlement.
Protecting Your Board & Senior Executives from a Cyber Nightmare: Ensuring D&O Insurance for Cyber Claims - Joshua Gold
April 24, 2017 from 01:45 PM - 02:45 PM
Every organization is exposed to a data breach risk. Whether through inadvertent data disclosure, computer system malfunction, a computer hacker, or all of these risks combined, the perils of a data breach are real and seemingly getting worse by the day. Regulators at the state and federal level have expressly warned organizations that they must be proactive and dedicated to minimizing the risk to themselves and their stakeholders. Investigations and litigation targeting senior company executives have recently cropped-up. This session will explore key D&O insurance coverage considerations from point of purchase to point of claim and will address the interplay of D&O insurance with other insurance policies that may come into play when addressing cyber claims, including crime insurance, property insurance, GL coverage, and cyber specialty insurance policies.
Can I Sue? Your Policy May Not Allow It! - Peter A. Halprin
April 26, 2017 from 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
When purchasing insurance coverage, insurance professionals look for many things including the amount of coverage, the type of coverage, and the amount of premium. Often times, as with many commercial contracts, the dispute resolution mechanisms, as well as choice of law provisions, are an afterthought. This, of course, makes sense – it is hard for those seeking coverage to think about what is going to happen if the purchased coverage is not provided when things go wrong. However, things can and do go wrong and a sophisticated purchaser of insurance needs to understand and be prepared for all eventualities. On this panel we review some of the pertinent dispute resolution mechanisms including negotiation, mediation, arbitration, litigation, and multi-step mechanisms, as well as choice of law provisions. Insurance professionals will learn about the various dispute resolution mechanisms and how to get the most out of each one.
The Anderson Kill speakers will also be available at Booth 1011.
