ABA webinar looks ahead to anticipated COVID-19 claims and reinsurance

WASHINGTON, April 29, 2020 — Join expert panelists as they examine the types of claims anticipated as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic and whether those claims are properly payable under insurance contracts during an American Bar Association-sponsored webinar titled “When the Second Shoe Drops: COVID-19 Losses and Reinsurance” on Friday, May 8, from 1-2 p.m. EDT.

The webinar, co-sponsored by the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section and the ABACLE, will present a roundtable discussion about what claims can be expected and how buyers and sellers of reinsurance expect to address COVID-19 claims as they arise. The program will provide:

  • An understanding of the broad scope of potential claims arising from COVID-19
  • Information about what reinsurers expect from their reinsured in presenting COVID-19 claims for payment
  • The legal issues likely to arise when claims are presented to reinsurers for payment

The webinar is free to the media. Reporters interested in registering for this webinar can contact Robert Robinson at robert.robinson@americanbar.org or by calling (202) 662-1097.
