Committee News

From the Professionalism and Ethics Committee:

Even when the insurer offers its policy limits, claimants often wish to verify the lack of other sources of recovery before agreeing to give a release. This may involve inquiries about such things as other insurance, whether the insured was acting in the course of some employment or agency, and/or other assets that might be subject to execution. If the insurer fails to notify its insured about such requests and that failure causes a settlement opportunity to be lost, the insurer may be liable for any resulting excess judgment.

We are now American College of Coverage Counsel

On August 28, 2018, the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel announced a name change; the College will be known as the American College of Coverage Counsel. The name change more succinctly reflects the association’s purpose. "Our mission remains the same: to advance the creative, ethical, and efficient adjudication of insurance coverage and extracontractual disputes,” said Mary McCutcheon, president of the American College of Coverage Counsel. “We will continue our focus on educating all sectors involved in the field of insurance law – including the judiciary, legal and insurance professionals, law students and businesses.”
