The Environmental Insurance Committee is composed of a variety of legal professionals with all levels of interest and experience in the management and mitigation of environmental risk and exposure to property owners, real estate transfers, mergers and acquisitions, financial institutions and other fiduciary interests, contractors, consultants, architects and engineers and various other scenarios through traditional liability insurance policy and non-traditional risk transfer mechanisms. Many of the committee members are experts in the environmental insurance industry with several professionals working in key environmental insurance industry, service provider and brokerage positions.

The interest, experience and talent within the committee serves to provide members with the latest information on emerging environmental issues and the solutions available in the insurance and financial markets through contract risk transfer, general liability insurance and more specific environmental insurance products such as pollution legal liability policies. Every other year, the committee sponsors the highly regarded CLE program entitled “Emerging Issues in Environmental Insurance” held in New York City and members also participate in other CLE committee programs as speakers providing insurance, claims handling and risk transfer expertise The topics typically include an overview of the environmental insurance product market place, trends from the perspectives of insurers, policy holders and brokers, and practical tips for counsel handling environmental insurance claims as well as negotiating and utilizing environmental insurance products to mitigate actual and potential pollution loss and risk.
