Hundreds of thousands of times per year, defendants are sued whose insurers have reserved their rights to later deny coverage and have appointed panel defense counsel, who may be ethically disqualified from representing the interests of both the insurer and the policyholder. Rules of Professional Conduct 1.4 (disclosure), 1.7 (undivided loyalty) and 1.6 (confidentiality) empower policyholders to regain control of their own defense, and incentivize reserving insurers and panel counsel to support fully funding prompt settlements, at no cost to the policyholder, in as little as a few weeks. 

This two-hour course will meld objective legal research with useful practice pointers to guide policyholders and their independent lawyers to enforce their rights, firmly, but politely - all without coverage litigation.
