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.

Interested in learning more about insurance for technology firms’ outsourcing relationships?

Julie Davis of Risk Communities asked me to speak with her again about insurance coverage issues for high tech firms.  In this video, we talk about insurance coverage for outsourcing relationships, particularly for technology firms.  Here is how Risk Communities described the video interview:

The technology industry is rich in its outsourcing relationships.  The industry outsources R&D, manufacturing, supply chain management, logistics, product servicing and more.

Due to changes in the economy, many technology firms are in the process of reviewing and re-evaluating their outsourcing contracts.  RiskCommunities had the opportunity to interview counsel, Scott Godes, [formerly] Dickstein Shapiro LLP, Washington D.C. on risks associated with outsourcing.

The full video interview, on risk management and outsourcing risks for technology firms, can be found at:  http://youtu.be/K1BEz8zPSME

My video interview with RiskCommunities regarding additional insureds and indemnity agreements for tech firms

Julie Davis of Risk Communities asked me to speak with her again about insurance coverage issues for high tech firms.  Here is how Risk Communities described the video interview:

Technology firms are rich in contractual relationships of all types.  Often those contractual relationships spark a discussion, or changes in business insurance policy provisions for many firms.

In the latest RiskCommunities Video, we interviewed Scott Godes [formerly] of Dickstein Shapiro LLP, to address some of the top questions asked about Additional Insured and Indemnity Agreements.  The top questions covered in our video interview include:

  1. What does it mean to be an Additional Insured?
  2. What does a Certificate of Insurance tell the Certificate holder?
  3. How does a deductible or self-insured retention apply in the context of Additional Insured coverage?
  4. Is there Insurance coverage available for Indemnity agreements?
  5. Does the contract affect the obligation to purchase additional coverages?
