In this edition of The Robins Kaplan Insurance Insight, we address “hot topics” involving fire and its insurance implications, including ingress/egress claims when wildfires cut off access to businesses, the fire damage legal liability limit in CGL policies, and claims arising from the Columbia gas explosions in Massachusetts. In addition, we discuss the heated conflict between artificial intelligence technology and tightening privacy regulations in the EU, as well as standards of review in insurance litigation appeals. 

We hope you enjoy this edition’s offerings and we welcome your feedback on topics and areas of interest for upcoming issues.
