Insurance Law Committee

Posted on: March 15, 2013 | Posted in: News

The Insurance Law Committee met on March 13, 2013 to review In re Zuber. Chairs Madeleine Fischer and David A. Strauss led a roundtable discussion on the Supreme Court decision regarding the specific requirements for insurance defense counsel who represent insureds, even when there is no reservation of rights.  The Court admonished that lawyers must be scrupulous about apprising clients/insureds of the limitations on the representation, including the right of the insurance company to settle the case regardless of the desires of the insured.
