He will highlight how the COVID-19 pandemic has compounded pre-existing market characteristics including shifting risk appetites, reduced capital inflows, constrained retrocession capacity and deteriorating loss experience.

1:00pm - 2:00pm: Litigation and Business Interruption Update

Scott Rybny, Chair Insurance Coverage & Extra-Contractual Liability Group, Morgan & Akins, PLLC

The nation and the world continues to grapple with (and predict) the potential impact of Covid-19. Everyone from small businesses, to state and federal governments, and insurance regulators is looking at the insurance marketplace as insurers and re-insurers deal with the unprecedented disruption of normal business operations stemming from forced government shutdowns. In comparison to the non-stop focus on the business interruption litigations, relatively few have discussed the other ways in which Covid-19 impacted insurers. From claims, to underwriting, employers, and investment managers every business sector of insurers is facing its own distinct challenges.

In this presentation, attendees will receive not only an update on the current state of the Covid-19 business interruption litigation (including the potential financial fallout) and also how those actions may impact the actions of Pennsylvania legislators, insurance regulators, and insurers for years to come.  

2:00pm - 2:15pm: Break

Steve Merrill, Senior Manager, BSSF
