Upcoming Webinar on the Impact of Horizontal vs. Vertical Exhaustion Rules on Multiple Layers of Coverage

On Wednesday, September 9, SDV’s own David Jordan will be co-presenting a webinar for Strafford Publications that will discuss vertical vs. horizontal insurance coverage exhaustion in construction defect disputes. The program will analyze:

  • the impact of exhaustion on allocation between the contractor’s primary and excess coverage
  • the priority of payment between the contractor and its subcontractors
  • the impact on additional insured coverage

The program will also discuss best practices for resolving allocation disputes in construction claims involving multiple parties and layers of coverage.
