The panel will look closely at new and trending exposures - from both traditional and new sources globally and review which D&O claims are most surprising and most anticipated in today’s landscape. Subjects including new exposures, claims, jurisdiction, case law, coverage triggers, potential claims issues, along with new coverage enhancements, will be covered.

CE/CLE eligible
Artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and predictive modeling are methods long used to underwrite life insurance and other personal lines. Their use is becoming more mainstream in commercial lines underwriting.

  Spark Session: The Second Wave of the Opioid Epidemic

The Beach Boys sang "catch a wave and you are sitting on top of the world". The Beach Boys did not know how deadly a wave could be. The next wave of the opioid epidemic is going to kill more people than the first wave did. This presentation will give attendees an understanding of what caused the first wave and how our efforts to stop the first wave caused the second wave. It will also explain what can be done to help mitigate the losses. Many more will die before the final wave calms down.

Speaker: William Zachry
Senior Fellow, Sedgwick Institute

Jeremy Kerman of Walker Wilcox Matousek LLP, will illustrate the basics of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and explain how blockchain technology works. We will also briefly cover the potential applications and impact of blockchain technology in the insurance world.

  Mega-Verdicts in MPL: Blip or Trend

CE/CLE eligible
There have been a number of large verdicts and settlements in medical professional liability in recent years. In 2017, there were many of these verdicts/settlements over $10M, with 7 cases of over $40M; perhaps the most ever at that level. This panel will discuss the data concerning these verdicts, the reasons why more of these verdicts are being seen despite overall low claim frequency in MPL, and review common threads in these claims. We hope to identify reasons why these very large verdicts are occurring and formulate claims and underwriting strategies to address the risk of these claims.

  Spark Session: A Bird's Eye View of Potential Drone Risks and Insurance Issues

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles ("UAVs" or "drones") are becoming more commonplace in the commercial sector. Although their use has been largely limited to the military or recreational arenas, a variety of industries are increasingly relying on drones to more quickly and effectively perform myriad functions. For instance, project engineers now use UAVs to survey construction sites; farmers use them to inspect crop progress; companies like Amazon use them to deliver products to your doorstep; and communication and utility companies use them to inspect cell towers and electrical lines. With this increased use comes increased risks, ranging from liability for bodily injury or property damage, privacy violations and other personal injuries, and contribution to professional negligence. This session will seek to spark discussion about: the various uses of and regulations governing UA Vs; potential risks for companies wishing to utilize drones in various capacities; potential underwriting issues insurance companies may want to consider when issuing policies to insureds who use UAVs in the scope of the work for which they are seeking coverage; and potential coverage issues from a claims perspective.

Speaker: Brandon Almond
Attorney, Troutman Sanders

2:30 pm - 2:50 pm
  Spark Session: The Hidden Risks of Social Movements

As social justice movements such as #MeToo and Time's Up strive for positive change through a variety of industries, unanticipated results can follow. For example, the trial and conviction of Dr. Larry Nassar brought into question Judge Janice Cunningham's professional conduct and the policies and procedures of Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee. "The Hidden Risks of Social Movements" will touch on the unanticipated countereffects professional firms and industries might see as they pursue equality and diversity initiatives. Topics will include, but are not limited to, legal malpractice risks and potential liability exposures. After attending the session, participants will be able to:

  • Assess insurance exposures related to current social events
  • Identify areas where potential countereffects to equality and diversity initiatives may occur
  • Increase awareness of the hidden risks of social movements with clients and customers in various lines of business

  D&O Cryptocurrency & Blockchain

CE/CLE eligible
Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) are more than a trend. In the last few years, companies have raised over $10B selling digital coins or tokens through ICOs and the phenomenon has attracted a deluge of attention from regulators, investors, entrepreneurs, and even some mature companies looking to crowdfund off of the digital craze. For the D&O industry, ICOs present new challenges in terms of coverage, pricing and risk. In this session, the panelists will discuss the current state of ICOs, the regulatory environment, coverage trends and what’s next.

CE/CLE eligible
With the Me Too environment creating hysteria in the boardroom, companies are paying closer attention to sexual conduct issues and using extreme measures to enforce a non-hostile environment.

This presentation will discuss loss controls, how companies mitigate claims and promote inclusiveness among executives as well as employees in the workplace.
