Allocation and Reimbursement of Defense Costs (Self-Study)


This course will provide an overview of insurance coverage issues that arise in connection with the defense of third-party claims and suits, focusing on how defense cost coverage is allocated when there are covered and non-covered claims and multiple insurers, and the disputes that can arise with regard to reimbursement of defense costs under different types of insurance policies.  Areas addressed will include how to determine when a defense is required, when conflicts give rise to the need for independent counsel, common reimbursement disputes that arise during the defense, critical components of the “duty, the methodology used in allocating defense costs between and among different insurers, different types of coverages, and insureds, and the extent to which insurers may “claw back” defense payments previously made to insureds.
