The Robins Kaplan Insurance Insight - Vol. 2, No. 2

Welcome to our Winter installment of The Robins Kaplan Insurance Insight, “A Year in Review.” In this edition, we look back on significant legal issues from the past year relating to insurance and women professionals. For example, we had the pleasure of sitting down with AIG’s Lucy Fato to hear about her philosophy on female leadership in the insurance industry. Looking back, Lucy’s strong focus on communication and relationships within the industry has been key to her success. We also reflect on an ongoing, hot button social issue, the #metoo movement and its crossover with insurance. As our readers know, coverage often turns on policy interpretation – we invite our readers to prepare for cold weather claims with our articles on snow removal and transmission and distribution lines. 2018 also brought with it new California rules that may affect insurance companies and litigation. We review both the new California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 and California’s Revised Rules of Professional Responsibility. Finally, we take a look at a current high-stakes litigation, which questions the scope of the Insurance Commissioner’s authority to interpret California’s Unfair Insurance Practices Act.

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