Scott Hecht to Present at the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel's Annual Meeting
Stinson Leonard Street partner Scott Hecht will present at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel May 16-18, 2018 at the Westin Chicago River North in Chicago.
At 10:15 a.m. May 18 Scott will participate in the "Are Two Policies Better than One?" panel discussion. The panelists will discuss interplay between occurrence-based CGL policies and claims-made PL policies when both are triggered. Typically one would think that more coverage is better for the insured, but this is not always the case. Issues that may arise include control of the defense, how defense costs are treated when only the PL policy is a "wasting" policy, and how indemnity costs are allocated, particularly when each policy provides different amounts of coverage.
Scott is a partner in the firm's Kansas City office. He represents corporate policyholders in business insurance matters. Scott has more than 20 years' experience handling litigated and pre-litigation claims under all manner of business insurance policies, including Property/Business Interruption; Product Recall and Contamination; Directors & Officers; Errors & Omissions; Employment Practices; Fiduciary; General Liability; and Cyber.
The meeting is open to ACCEC Fellows only. More information is available at the ACCEC's website.
