BBA Webinar: Insurance Issues for New Insurance Defense Associates

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM


The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link. 

New insurance defense associates quickly learn how to evaluate liability and damages in claims against the defendants they represent. But the insurance company is also their client. Associates need to understand the implications of this “tripartite relationship” and how it affects their representation. This webinar will cover the basics, including:

  • The difference between the duty to defend and the duty to indemnify.
  • How an attorney should handle a case that the insurer is defending under a “reservation of rights.”
  • The attorney’s duty to both the insured and the insurer, and conflicts of interest that may arise.
  • The responsibility of the insurer (and insurance defense counsel) to protect the interests of the insured, and how that plays out in defending a case and negotiating settlement.

This webinar is intended for attorneys who have been working as insurance defense associates for 0 to 4 years, but is also a refresher for more experienced attorneys.
