Insurance Roundtable: Defending Bad Faith Claims

September 15, 2015

Bad faith claims are not easy to beat. An awareness and understanding of the defenses available to the insurer is key to successfully defending against such claims. In this presentation, we will explore the threshold inquiries: are we dealing with a covered claim and was the insurer reasonable in its claims handling? We will also discuss the most commonly used defenses to bad faith claims: the statute of limitations defense, the “genuine dispute” doctrine, and the advice of counsel defense.

Insurance Roundtables are intended to be interactive and participatory roundtables, on topics of interest to the Insurance Industry, led by the partners of the firm's Insurance Law practice group: Jean M. Lawler, Bryan M. Weiss, and Malena Dobal. 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.
