Margo Brownell, partner and head of Maslon's Insurance Coverage Group, will serve on a panel for the American Bar Association's Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee CLE Seminar taking place February 28 - March 3, 2018. During her session on March 3, titled "'Occurrences' and 'Wrongful Acts': One Plus One Does Not Always Equal Two," the panel of policyholder and insurer-side attorneys will provide an update on developments in the case law dealing with the number of occurrences and wrongful acts, including the tests commonly used by courts to decide the issue, a discussion of how the policy language can work in favor of policyholders or insureds, and strategies used by both sides to most effectively advance their interests.
Margo represents commercial policyholders with complex insurance claims under all types of property and liability policies, including commercial general liability, directors and officers liability, professional liability, cyber-liability, and intellectual property liability coverage. In addition, she handles complex property claims, such as those arising from major catastrophic events like the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina as well as claims under financial institution bonds and commercial crime policies. Margo has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota Law School, where she has taught insurance law and founded the Insurance Law Clinic.
