The Top 8 Legal Developments You Need to Know About in 2017 9/20/2017

 

​NEW YORK (September 20, 2017) — Recognizing the impact legal developments can have on an organization’s insurance program, RIMS’ new Professional Report “The Top 8 Legal Developments You Need to Know About in 2017” explores key insurance-related decisions in the United States.
The legal decisions highlighted in the report address pertinent risk management issues such as rights to coverage, notice, cyber claims, consent to settle, among others. The cases were chosen by the authors based on subject matter importance, legal pedigree and practical relevance.

“Risk professionals and their organizations’ legal teams must forge strong, collaborative relationships to effectively manage claims and procure appropriate insurance coverage,” said RIMS Chief Executive Officer Mary Roth. “Being aware of recent legal developments can be a major advantage and contribute to the organization’s ability to remain focused on strategic goals.”
 
The Top 8 Legal Developments You Need to Know About in 2017 report is available to RIMS Members only for the first 60-days. After the introductory period, it will become available to the broader risk management community. To download the report, visit RIMS Risk Knowledge library at www.RIMS.org/RiskKnowledge. For more information about the Society and to learn about other RIMS educational opportunities, conferences and resources, visit www.RIMS.org.

The report expresses the views of the authors and not any, law firm, company or client. Further it does not provide legal advice, as such advice would require review of particular facts and law.
