Hammond Invited to Present DRI Webinar on COVID-19 and Business Interruption Claims
Although the hospitality industry has made headlines for the effect COVID-19 has had on it, the legal industry has also felt the pandemic’s impact. As a result, many law firms are or may be turning to their insurance carriers to make business income loss claims. Are law firms entitled to insurance coverage for their lost revenue as a result of the pandemic? HeplerBroom’s Rick Hammond will be part of what’s likely to be a very spirited point-counterpoint webinar discussing the issue. The webinar, which is being sponsored by DRI, will be held from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. (CDT) on June 16. Registration information is available here.
Hammond, a partner in the firm’s Chicago office, focuses his practice on matters relating to property insurance coverage, fire and explosion cases, and bad faith. He also serves as an expert witness on insurer bad faith and as an adjunct Professor of Insurance Law at Loyola University Chicago Law School. In addition, he is a member of Loyola University Chicago’s Board of Trustees and Past President of the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel.
