Margo Brownell, partner and head of Maslon's Insurance Coverage Group, will present at a plenary session of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation's 2017 Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee CLE Seminar on March 1-4, 2017. The presentation, "Our Lips Are Sealed ... Until They're Not: The Attorney-Client Privilege and Work Product Doctrine In Insurance Claims Disputes and Tripartite Relationships," will discuss waiver and exceptions to the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine, the unique privilege issues present in the tripartite relationship, the role of lawyers in the context of handling or investigating insurance disputes, and relevant legal ethics standards in light of the rules of professional responsibility.

In addition, she handles complex property claims, such as those arising from major catastrophic events such as the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, as well as claims under financial institution bonds and commercial crime policies.
