Environmental Insurance: Market Update, Policy Overview, and Strategic Insights -- BNA Webinar

Date: Thursday, January 27, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (ET)

Sustained interest in the redevelopment of contaminated properties and the steady growth of brownfield initiatives has led the insurance industry to develop a range of environmental insurance products providing coverage for environmental claims that are precluded in most general liability policies. As the use of environmental insurance as a risk management tool, both from a real estate and operational perspective, continues to gain momentum, the environmental insurance market remains an evolving commodity. Moreover, recent developments on the case law front are also having an impact on both the drafting of these policies and the claims process.

For attorneys in private practice, as well as corporate and government counsel – and particularly for practitioners focused in the environmental and real estate sectors – keeping pace with market offerings and staying ahead of the curve on best practices and current trends in the environmental insurance arena can translate into a critical strategic advantage. This 90-minute webinar, featuring Ann M. Waeger, will explore a broad range of topics related to the role of environmental insurance in real property and redevelopment transactions, and is designed to help you:

■Gain insight on today’s marketplace and key players
■Learn about the types of available policies and what they cover, including recent enhancements for the use of green remediation and/or standards
■Identify typical scenarios for the use of environmental insurance policies
■Utilize negotiation and drafting tips from the “trenches”
■Gain perspective on key policy terms and lessons learned from case law
■Understand the claims process
