This course includes a short primer about the purpose of and public policy behind the sometimes counter-intuitive United States bankruptcy regime. After that, we will discuss various scenarios in which insurance companies may become embroiled in the bankruptcy process. The course will also address best practices for insurance companies in the bankruptcy space.
After finishing this course, attendees should possess an awareness and knowledge of the bankruptcy process in order to spot important bankruptcy-related issues involved in their insurance-related litigation—from fender benders and coverage issues to insurance commercial loan matters. This will not be an exhaustive presentation on all potential bankruptcy-related issues that may arise in the insurance law context, but it will provide a good survey of issues that commonly arise.
