“NY’S Limiting Requirements to Policy Wording Are Unjust,” Insurance Law Update

In this Insurance Law Update, Jenner & Block Partner Matthew L. Jacobs explores the implications of a recent case in New York in which the state’s highest court limited a government contractor’s ability to obtain insurance coverage as an “additional insured” under a subcontractor’s insurance policy.  “The practical result could be an unintended and unjustified limitation on the coverage available to additional insureds in New York,” Mr. Jacobs observes.  Summer Associate Harrison Stark assisted with the article, which was reprinted in Law360.
