For those of you interested in the differences between claim made and occurrence coverage, please note that on March 17, 2016, Duane Musfelt, a partner in our San Francisco office, and Jenny Michel, a partner in our Lafayette, LA office, presented a webinar titled: “Examining Occurrence and Claim Made Policies for Third Party Claims.” They discussed critical distinctions between occurrence and claim made policies, including what events potentially trigger coverage, when and how notice of a claim appropriately should be submitted, the consequences of late notice, and related issues. Should you have any questions regarding this topic, please contact Duane at 415.438.6606 (Duane.Musfelt@lewisbrisbois.com) or Jenny at 337.205.4739 (Jenny.Michel@lewisbrisbois.com).
