The panel will address the pre-suit duties of the policyholder and insurer under CGL policies, including judicial constructions of the policy “suit” requirement, the question whether the duty to defend or indemnify can be triggered prior to an actual lawsuit, and the different approaches courts have taken to whether (and when) pre-suit and pre-tender expenses can be reimbursed. Gray•Duffy is a Silver Sponsor of the conference, being held February 21-23, 2019 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix.
