Please check out: “Seeking Insurance Under Someone Else’s Policy? Tips for Companies Requiring Additional Insured Status.”

The insurance coverage and insurance recovery practice of my formerDanger - Construction Area firm, Dickstein Shapiro LLP, has a new blog, Policyholder Informer.  The Policyholder Informer blog is featuring my post, “Seeking Insurance Under Someone Else’s Policy? Tips for Companies Requiring Additional Insured Status.”

The introduction to the post reads:

If your company is in the construction field, then you know it well: the request to be added as an additional insured to another company’s insurance policy. For example, general contractors (GC) often require subcontractors to add the GC as an additional insured to the subcontractor’s insurance policy. That continues down the line of subcontractors and sub-subcontractors.

I also give five initial pointers regarding additional insured coverage for companies requesting additional insured status.  The Internet Wayback Machine has an archive of the post, which you can check out by clicking here.

Samantha Drake quotes me in her article, “Indemnification Agreements: Who Benefits From Your Coverage?”


In her article, Indemnification Agreements: Who Benefits From Your Coverage?, author Samantha Drake writes about insurance coverage, indemnity agreements, and additional insureds.

The article opens:

Shifting financial liability through contractual apportionment of risk is nothing new. But issues such as the scope of indemnity, choice of law and naming additional insureds adds so many potential wrinkles to an already complex area in which attorneys must be sure to do their homework.

The article discusses the points raised in a “recent panel entitled ‘Additional Insured Issues and Indemnification Agreements'” in which I spoke, “along with Timothy E. Delahunt, of Kenney Shelton Liptak Nowak LLP and Adam M. Shienvold, of Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott LLP. HB Litigation Conferences produced the panel.”  Ms. Drake quoted me in the article, writing:

Indemnification agreements are “something with which people have a lot of familiarity, at least in concept, but in terms of practice the law has a lot of variations,” said Scott Godes [formerly] of Dickstein Shapiro LLP.

Ms. Drake also noted my discussions of exceptions to exclusions within insurance policies for contractual liability, including exceptions for insured contracts.  She also provided an overview of the supplementary payments clause found in commercial general liability insurance policies (CGL policies).
