"Statutory Damages: The Murky Void Between Compensation and Punishment," Speaker, American Bar Association Section of Litigation’s Women in Insurance Network Annual Conference, October 2016.
In an era when high risk class actions seeking statutory damages are increasingly being filed for violations of privacy rights and related offenses, the presenters discussed the complex issues surrounding whether the remedies constitute “damages” or “loss” under general liability and errors and omissions policies, and strategies for navigating coverage disputes involving such claims, including those involving the interplay between class action and other underlying liability and insurance coverage principles in such coverage disputes, as well as the insurance industry’s attempt to curb exposure through new policy language.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
