Solving A $5 Million Problem

Case Study

Solving A $5 Million Problem

Our Executive Liability team was engaged by one of our West Coast offices to assist a large financial institution unhappy with its existing broker’s executive liability service. After digging into the client’s policy terms, the team discovered a serious weakness. The previous broker advised that the client had coverage when it came to informal SEC investigations. A careful analysis of the policy language showed this wasn’t true.

Information requests and management interviews wouldn't trigger coverage; a distinction that could leave the insured client with a potential $5 million problem. Our team understands that important problems are often shaded in the fine print. We dig deeper and negotiate the appropriate contract language that ensures our clients have proper coverage for real-world issues, like informal investigations.
