Michael A. Stockalper Featured in Law360

Michael Stockalper recently authored the Law360 Expert Analysis article titled, “Insured Takeaways From 10th Circ. Interrelated Claims Ruling.” This article discusses the ramifications of American Southwest Mortgage Corp. v. Continental Casualty Co. case, where the Tenth Circuit applied a broad interpretation of Oklahoma law on “interrelated acts”, creating a concerning precedent for policyholders seeking to maximize coverage under a professional liability policy with per claim limits. Mike discusses the implications to companies with a similar exposure seeking to maximize per claim limits and options for those companies to explore. The full article can be found at this link here.
