Event summary

Since the onset of shutdown orders due to COVID-19, business owners have turned to their insurance policies to seek coverage for lost revenue and other pandemic-induced expenses. Insurers have generally denied business interruption coverage for these claims, referring to policy requirements for direct physical loss. Policyholders have brought their claims to the courts, and in most cases, judges have ruled in favor of the insurers. However, this trend is expected to change as policyholders start to find the weaknesses of the insurers' arguments.

In this webinar, hosted by The Knowledge Group, Cooley associate Alex Selarnick will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent regulatory and litigation developments surrounding COVID-19-related insurance claims. Alex will also provide practical strategies in managing business interruption insurance claim issues in today’s evolving legal climate.

Topics include 

  • COVID-19 business interruption coverage claims and litigation – recent trends
  • Notable court rulings
  • Considerations for both insurers and policyholders
  • Best practices and effective strategies
  • Outlook
