On January 22, Gordon & Rees Chicago partner Craig Jacobson presented at the ABA Fidelity & Surety Law MidWinter Meeting in New York.
Jacobson’s presentation, entitled “A Primer on the Law Governing Manuscripted and Unique Policy Language,” provided an overview of the legal principles and case law that apply to the interpretation and application of non-standard insurance policy language. Jacobson also addressed the use of extrinsic evidence and the insured's role in policy negotiations as they relate to the resolution of any actual or perceived ambiguities in an insurance policy.
Jacobson concentrates his practice on handling and litigating complex insurance coverage disputes. He represents domestic and international insurers in matters involving coverage issues arising under property policies, fidelity and financial institution bonds, surety bonds, commercial crime policies, professional liability policies, director and officer liability policies, and commercial general liability policies.
