Event Description

FIRST IN THE SERIES

Preserving the Privilege 

The Erosion of Protections for Confidential Communications Between In-House Attorneys, Claim Professionals, and Outside Counse

You are cordially invited to the first in a series of quarterly CLE and networking events catering exclusively to in-house counsel and attorney claim professionals in the insurance industry. 

The attorney-client privilege and the work product immunity are frequently asserted in insurance litigation, but their nuances are not well understood. Common myths abound, especially about the protections afforded to communications between insurance company claim professionals and in-house attorneys or outside counsel before litigation is initiated. In our January program, lawyers in our Insurance + Reinsurance Group will lead an interactive presentation on the application of these privileges to confidential communications concerning open claims and liability and loss investigations. Among the topics to be addressed are:

  • What types of communications between in-house lawyers and their clients are protected?
  • Is there special treatment for communications involving a claim professional who holds a law degree?
  • What are the critical differences between jurisdictions in the application of privileges?   
  • How can companies avoid the inadvertent waiver of these privileges? 
  • When does outside counsel become a “superadjuster,” and how does that affect claims of privilege? 

After the presentation, please join us for drinks and hors d’oeuvres, and the opportunity to network with other in-house counsel and attorney claim professionals. 

If you have any questions relating to the content of this program, please contact Greg Varga, Esq. at gvarga@rc.com or at 860.275.8230.

This program qualifies for 1.5 hours of CLE credit in Connecticut and 1.8 hours in New York and Rhode Island.  

Robinson+Cole is a New York and Rhode Island accredited MCLE provider.

Additional programs in our Insurance In-House Counsel CLE Series are scheduled for March 29, June 20, September 6, and December 6, 2018. We hope you can join us.
