Sean Carnathan Presents Ch. 176D CLE at Boston Bar Association

OCM partner Sean Carnathan will present “Ch. 176D Claims in Commercial Litigation: When Does Liability Become ‘Reasonably Clear?’” at the Boston Bar Association. The November 18 CLE course focuses on an issue that claimants, insurance carriers, and attorneys often struggle with in complex litigation cases – when and how a carrier must “effectuate a prompt, fair and equitable settlement of claims in which liability has become reasonably clear” as required by Mass. Gen. L. ch. 176D.

In addition to Sean, the panel includes Daniel Patrick Tighe, a partner at Donnelly, Conroy & Gelhaar, LLP, and Sara Jane Shanahan, a partner at Sherin and Lodgen LLP. Sean, Dan and Sara have each been litigating and writing about Ch. 176D issues for 25 years. They will discuss, among other things, when a carrier must make a settlement offer, and litigating related disputes.
