Insurance Law Update: “D&O Insurance Tips For Coronavirus-Related Claims,” Law360

In the April Insurance Law Update, Jenner & Block Partner Jan A. Larson and Associate Catherine L. Doyle explore the impact that the coronavirus pandemic is having on the business community.  They highlight two putative class actions in which company executives have been named as defendants.  “We urge all corporate policyholders that may be subject to COVID-19 claims as a result of corporate statements, disclosures and responses in connection with this crisis to review their D&O liability insurance policies and evaluate available potential coverage, paying particular attention to policy exclusions and other limitations and coordinating with experienced coverage counsel as needed,” they suggest.
