    1 PM GMT

    Don’t miss this FREE hot topic teleconference, part of the ABA-TIPS Member Mondays CLE Series on Monday, December 7th! This complimentary teleconference series was created for TIPS members to address your areas of practice!

     This program of experts will address:

     · When an insurer defends a third-party claim under a reservation of rights and pays for the policyholder’s personal defense counsel, are communications between the insurer and personal counsel privileged as to the third-party plaintiff? Our experts will review this question in-depth as well as issues concerning the defense of the claim, coverage and the insurer’s claim file.  

     · If the insurer considers the defense bill to be exorbitant, can the insurer bring an action for recoupment against the policyholder? Against defense counsel directly? What’s privilege and what’s not?

     · The multiple competing legal and public policy issues that often accompany privilege considerations such as a lawyer’s duty of confidentiality under the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and a lawyer’s duty of honesty under various ethics rules.
