When Insurance Coverage Issues Get In The Way of Settlement


As a litigator turned mediator, I believe it is crucial (both for myself and the parties for whom I mediate), that I stay current on relevant legal issues and practices. With that in mind, I recently attended a seminar on mediation and arbitration of insurance coverage disputes in the Lloyd’s of London insurance market. While this subject is a fairly esoteric one usually reserved for coverage geeks like myself, the seminar did remind me of many coverage disputes that may have a profound impact on the settlement of all kinds of lawsuits; including employment, professional liability, products liability, construction defect, securities class actions and long term exposure bodiy injury cases (such as asbestosis).
