Emerging Issues In Environmental Insurance (2014)


4.5 TOTAL CREDITS in Professional Practice

The current emphasis on enforcement of stringent federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations has resulted in increasing environmental risk and loss exposure. In response, environmental insurance products have evolved to help address these risks. This program examines critical aspects of environmental insurance and provides valuable information on using environmental insurance as a risk management tool.


Leaders of key environmental insurance companies will provide an environmental insurance market update and discuss current coverage issues and claim trends. Sessions will address emerging legal liability and evolving coverages and will feature practical tips from environmental insurance experts. Lessons learned will also be presented to help practitioners maximize available environmental coverage and minimize disputes with carriers.
