Webinar Description: Litigation Between Insurance Carriers in Illinois
Most insurance litigation involves disputes between insureds and their insurers. However, litigation between two insurers has become more common, as they dispute the extent to which each is responsible for a major loss. This is particularly common in environmental and asbestos litigation and construction litigation but can also take place in other types of litigation. This webinar will examine the insurance policy provisions involved in disputes between insurers, the theories of recovery when two insurers have responsibility for all or part of the same loss, the potential for an insurer to recover from another insurer for bad faith, and some strategic considerations for insurers and their counsel in this type of litigation.
