Sponsored by McKool Smith: Seeking Insurance Coverage for Coronavirus-related Losses


Sponsored by McKool Smith. 
The coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly had a significant impact on businesses around the globe. Corporate policyholders are looking for insurance coverage for both current and future losses, and insurers, facing massive obligations, will look for any exclusions to deny coverage. McKool Smith’s insurance litigators have extensive experience handling insurance disputes, including claims resulting from past crises such as 9/11 and Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and have secured more than $10 billion in insurance assets for clients.
This presentation, featuring principal Marc Ladd and senior associate Alex Sugzda, will focus on:
• Potential routes for businesses to recover revenues/profits lost due to Covid-19, hurdles insurers may raise, and how those hurdles can be overcome;
• The view from the trenches on how insurers have responded to our clients’ claims; and
• A review of potential legislative solutions concerning insurance coverage for coronavirus.
Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the sponsor of this webinar.
