“Pre-Tender” Case Compendium

Tender is the Right:  Are insurers required to reimburse insureds for defense costs incurred before they seek a defense from their insurers? While most courts say no, the reasons for declining coverage vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The College's CGL Excess and Surplus Lines Committee has prepared an analysis of the issue and a compendium of the cases from the 50 United States and the provinces of Canada.

We are now American College of Coverage Counsel

On August 28, 2018, the American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel announced a name change; the College will be known as the American College of Coverage Counsel. The name change more succinctly reflects the association’s purpose. "Our mission remains the same: to advance the creative, ethical, and efficient adjudication of insurance coverage and extracontractual disputes,” said Mary McCutcheon, president of the American College of Coverage Counsel. “We will continue our focus on educating all sectors involved in the field of insurance law – including the judiciary, legal and insurance professionals, law students and businesses.”
