Partner Nathan Lee was a co-panelist on the webinar “Excess Insurers’ Right to Challenge the Primary Insurers’ Claim Adjustment” held on March 1, 2022.
The webinar discussed when prior rulings on coverage do not bind an excess insurer that follows form and when it can challenge the primary carrier’s coverage, settlement, and payment decisions, including the theory of “improper erosion.” The panelists also examined:
- Following form and its variations
- Challenging claims treatment the excess is asked to cover
- Challenging claims treatment the excess is not asked to cover
- Binding effect of prior judgments
- Recent decisions
