Hill Co-Chairs And Fahey Speaks At ABA Property Insurance Law Committee Annual Meeting

April 11, 2016 / Events

Clausen Miller Chicago Partner Celeste A. Hill recently co-chaired the Spring Meeting of the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section’s Property Insurance Law Committee on April 7-9 at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. This year’s CLE meeting was titled, “Lessons Learned: How Major Catastrophic Losses Shape Property Insurance Law.” The meeting agenda included a chronological retrospective of major losses and the prospective impact they have had on the law.

CM Chicago Partner Margaret Hupp Fahey was part of a distinguished group of speakers, comprised of seasoned practitioners, judges, industry professionals and experts, who offered interesting and entertaining panel discussions starting with the 1906 San Francisco earthquake–and the development of ensuing loss coverage–through the legal impact of catastrophic events including the eruption of Mount St. Helens, September 11, the Japanese Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and ending with the developing area of property insurance coverage for cybersecurity losses. The program also included a presentation on locating and vetting experts for property disputes involving catastrophic losses. The meeting concluded with an ethics presentation by participants from the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20 who discussed amendments the ABA has made to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct.
