Writing Effective Reservation and Denial Letters

September 13, 2011

When an insurer decides to defend an action under a reservation of rights, or to deny coverage entirely, it is crucial that the written communications to the insured effectively convey the insurer’s position and that the letters comply with statutes, regulations and case law. An improperly drafted letter can result in liability against the insurer that could have been avoided. This Roundtable will address how these letters should be properly written so that they hold up to judicial scrutiny and effectively convey the carrier’s position.

This and the other Insurance Roundtables are intended to be interactive and participatory roundtables, on topics of interest to the Insurance Industry, led by Jean M. Lawler and Bryan M. Weiss, Co-Chairs of the firm's Insurance Law practice group. Please feel free to contact Ms. Lawler or Mr. Weiss if you have any questions or would like to arrange for a private educational program for your company.
