Bad Faith Liability

On January 15, 2016, Jill B. Berkeley will participate in a panel at the IDC Insurance Seminar, focused on the rights and the duties of the insured, the insurer, and defense counsel in settling underlying lawsuits. Topics discussed will include: what are the obligations of an insurer with regard to negotiation and funding a settlement; what are the obligations of defense counsel when there is a policy limits demand; when can an insured settle without the insurer's consent; and when can an insured and the underlying plaintiff agree to settle for more than the policy limits, limit collection against the insurer only, and provide the defendant with a full release and covenant not to execute.
