Because concepts such as the duty to defend, the law of damages or the interpretation of the commercial general liability policy are always complex, challenging and ever-changing.

As the cost of resolving these claims escalates, it’s more important than ever to develop an up-to-date mastery of the law and strategies available to effectively identify and resolve coverage issues. Defence and insurance counsel must know when and how to deny coverage — or risk massive bad faith claims and punitive damages. And Plaintiff counsel must understand exactly when they can push the envelope when faced with a denial of a proof of loss.

In order to provide the best value to your client or company, you need to keep abreast of shifting trends in claims coverage disputes. Best practice risk management requires both a thorough understanding of new developments in liability and the litigation expertise to shape future legal developments.

The Canadian Institute’s 4th Annual Advanced Forum on Insurance Coverage Disputes brings together an expert faculty of insurance lawyers and industry representatives who will share their extensive knowledge and best practices on the topics that you have indicated are important to you, including:
