Timothy Law of Reed Smith in Philadelphia spoke at HB Litigation Conferences’ Claims Made Insurance Litigation program in New York on October 7, 2009.

Law, who represents policyholders in coverage disputes, spoke during a session titled “Consequences of Failure to Give Timely Notice Under Claims Made Forms.”

In this clip, Law introduces the first of five themes – or what he considers myths – he observed in reviewing case law that is favorable to insurance carriers in the context of claims made policies.  Law offers what he calls “Myth #1: The Relative Importance of Notice in the Claims Made Context” (as opposed to occurrence policies).   See what he had to say.
