“Great, I’m Being Investigated By the Government—Do I have Coverage For That?” ABA Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee

On March 7, Associate Jan A. Larson spoke at the ABA Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee’s Annual Conference in Tucson, Arizona, attended by attorneys from both the insurer-side and policyholder-side bar.  Jan participated in a panel discussion titled “Great, I’m Being Investigated By the Government—Do I have Coverage For That?”  Jan addressed significant insurance considerations concerning the existence of D&O liability coverage for investigation costs and settlements for fines, penalties, restitution, or other relief.  She also examined the variety of documents involved in a government investigation that can serve as the coverage “trigger” under typical policy wording and common claim scenarios.   

Jan is a member of the Insurance Recovery and Counseling and Products Liability Practices.  She has broad experience representing corporate policyholders nationwide in disputes with their insurers and in complex litigation in both state and federal courts involving a variety of insurance claims.
