Participants will receive practical guidance on how to handle conflicting duties in the tripartite insurer-defense counsel-insured relationship. Topics include a review of the state of the law and focus on complex cases; an exploration of myriad practical and ethical conflicts and quandaries; the insurer’s obligation concerning appointing defense counsel; how to avoid waiver of the attorney-client privilege; and understanding the complexities of both the defense and coverage of claims.
