The spread of COVID-19 has been swift, involving travel bans, emergency declarations, airport screenings, and stay-in-place orders in multiple states and cities. The financial impact of these decisions has resulted in the closure of businesses and widespread employee layoffs. Business owners and lawyers need to understand which insurance policies may provide coverage, and what insurance coverage issues are likely to arise if claims are made. 

In this program, two of the leading insurance coverage attorneys in the United States: Michael Bidart and Ricardo Echeverria of Shernoff Bidart Echeverria, LLP provide insight into the complex coverage issues for business owners. Over the course of its forty-year history in insurance coverage, Shernoff Bidart Echeverria, LLP has obtained over $5 billion in insurance coverage for their clients.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Business Interruption coverage
  • An analysis of exposures for insurers and of business sectors likely to suffer big losses 
  • Property, first party policies, and contingent business interruption coverage: to what extent is property coverage designed to cover coronavirus losses?
  • Bad Faith issues

This program is for attorneys and other legal professionals who advise (or want to advise) business clients on coverage matters on insurance disputes.
