Monica T. Sullivan To Present Bermuda Form Issues and Arbitration at Upcoming DRI Insurance Coverage & Practice Symposium

December 5, 2014

On Friday, December 5, 2014, Nicolaides LLP partner Monica T. Sullivan will present Bermuda Form Issues and Arbitration at the Insurance Coverage & Practice Symposium in New York, New York.

Bermuda insurers and versions of the Bermuda Policy Form are involved in coverage disputes with increasing regularity. Monica’s presentation addresses the history of the Bermuda market, jurisdictional concerns, and an overview of the Bermuda Form, including “Occurrence Reported” coverage, notice issues, aggregation of claims, and the maintenance deductible defense. Her presentation also addresses the mechanics of Bermuda Form arbitrations.

The ICP is DRI’s annual insurance coverage symposium. This year’s program will be co-chaired by Nicolaides LLP partner Sara M. Thorpe and, in addition to Monica’s presentation, includes an address by a judge from New York’s highest appellate court and presentations by claims executives, outside counsel, a UCLA law school professor, and a jury consultant on topics such as ethical considerations in insurer communications, duty to settle, insurer recoupment, the privacy offense, social media as an investigative tool, and self-insured retentions.
