Margo Brownell, head of Maslon's Insurance Coverage Group, and Hillary Taylor, associate in Maslon's Litigation Group, have co-authored a chapter update for the 4th edition of Minnesota CLE's Minnesota Insurance Law Deskbook, titled "Directors and Officers Liability Insurance." The Minnesota Insurance Law Deskbook is the authoritative resource on Minnesota insurance coverage issues and addresses general issues such as rules of construction, duties of insured, and ethical considerations as well as specific insurance coverages such as homeowners insurance, commercial general liability insurance, professional liability insurance, workers' compensation insurance, and cyber insurance.
Margo represents commercial policyholders with complex insurance claims under all types of property and liability policies, including commercial general liability, directors and officers liability, professional liability, cyber-liability, and intellectual property liability coverage. In addition, she handles complex property claims, such as those arising from major catastrophic events like the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina as well as claims under financial institution bonds and commercial crime policies.
Hillary focuses her practice on tort and product liability, construction and insurance litigation, and general commercial litigation. She serves on the Boards of Directors for the Minnesota Lavender Bar Association and Minnesota Justice Foundation, and she provides pro bono services for both the Children's Law Center of Minnesota and the Volunteer Lawyers Network. Hillary graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was on the managing editorial board of the Journal of Law & Politics.
