Sean Carnathan Authors Insurer’s Duties to Defend and Indemnify: Massachusetts

OCM partner Sean Carnathan authored the Insurer’s Duties to Defend and Indemnify:  Massachusetts, a Thomson Reuters Practical Law Commercial Transactions publication. Drawing on years of experience representing policyholders in disputes with their insurers, Sean’s publication is a Q&A guide to an insurer’s duties to defend and indemnify claims and losses in Massachusetts under commercial general liability (CGL) policies. In the Q&A, Sean addresses state laws, court cases, and customs that impact the duties to defend and indemnify, when the duties are triggered and what they encompass, the scope of the duties, notice requirements, policy interpretation, defense and attorneys’ fees, and duration. The publication is available on the Thomson Reuters Practical Law website.
