The Education Agenda on March 14 features the following timely topics:

The PwC Global Insurance Run-Off Survey: The Findings
Learn about the results of the PwC Global run-off survey and what US respondents think about prospects for the US run-off market. This will include key objectives for run-off business and the challenges faced in achieving them along with expectations for future run-off deal activity and the types of restructuring tools that may be most widely used. The presentation will also look at how global respondents view the US market and what the key run-off trends are likely to be in other global markets in the near future.


September 11th – A Coverage Retrospective
Take a look back at the insurance and reinsurance coverage issues that emerged from the tragic events of September 11, 2001. With respect to the developer of the World Trade Center, was the coordinated attack of two-planes on the WTC buildings one event or two? For the WTC’s commercial tenants whose storefronts were destroyed, did their business interruption loss continue until the unique WTC property was restored? With respect to the first responders, how was insurance (and reinsurance) coverage of their workers’ compensation claims extended by statute and what (if any) impact did that statutory amendment have on existing insurance/reinsurance contracts?

What is Cumis Counsel and When Do I Need One?
A Cumis Counsel is a legal counsel chosen by the insured when the insurer has a conflict of interest. Learn about the California case that was the beginning of this concept and what insurers need to know about it.

Evaluating Risk in the E-Cigarette/ Vape Industry
As the prevalence of e-cigarettes increase, we are still missing good concrete information on the long-term health risks, and the lack of regulation creates other dangers.    This session will prove a status and update surrounding the state of claims and litigation and touch on the following topics:

  • Industry background trends
  • A review of claims including injuries and cases
  • Technological advancements that may impact risk exposure
  • Legal considerations to minimize risk exposure
     

An Ethics Duo: Ethics for In House Counsel and Ethical Implications of New DFS Rules on Cybersecurity
In a two part ethics session our presenters will review the top ethical issues that in-house counsel face and how to address them as well as look at a just enacted New York regulation on Cybersecurity. Continuing education ethics credits will be available to attorneys licensed in a number of states.
