Recovery of property loss and business interruption claims under property insurance policies can present businesses with complex and difficult challenges.  The process can affect businesses both directly and indirectly, as one business' loss may cause losses to and interrupt the business of others.  Property loss, and the ensuing loss of business, can be due to various causes, from Superstorm Sandy to construction accidents to fire.  Our presentation will draw upon lessons learned from our experience dealing with claims not only from Sandy, Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, but also from complex losses involving construction sites, hospitality industry properties and commercially leased buildings.  We will provide practical advice for successfully pursuing insurance recoveries.  Many of the insurance issues are relevant to businesses that own, manage, build or lease insured commercial property.

The topics discussed will include:

  1. developing strategies for presenting and pursuing claims
  2. understanding key coverage issues and the court decisions interpreting important policy provisions
  3. dispute resolution options
