Pleadings and Insurance Coverage: What Every Litigator Needs to Know

When:  Feb 14, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CT)

Deadline to Register: Tuesday, February 12, 2019

All too often litigators ignore the important role insurance can play in litigation – both in terms of getting your client paid or making sure your client’s duty to defend is triggered. The purpose of this CLE is to give litigators a basic understanding of the role pleading practice can play in triggering or excluding insurance coverage. It will cover pre-litigation tips and tricks for dealing with insurance coverage issues, pleading strategies for triggering insurance coverage and the duty to defend, and how to avoid common pitfalls.

A Trial Books CLE: Trial Books is a new practicelaw resource. Members provide a complete collection of successful trial documents, from "complaint to closing argument." These documents are then introduced in our Trial Books CLE series.

Other Trial Books CLEs in February:

2/19: Trial Books: Conciliation Appeals

2:20: Trial Books: Evictions


Kyle Willems: Kyle is attorney at Tewksbury & Kerfeld, PA. His practice focuses on construction, insurance, and products liability litigation.
