Webinar: ABA Forum Committee on Entertainment and Sports Industries – Insurance and Risk Allocation

On October 30, the ABA Forum Committee on Entertainment and Sports Industries will present an informative webinar on Insurance and Risk Allocation in the Entertainment and Sports Industries: Hot Topics and Overlooked Issues.

From film and television production to live sporting events and theatrical and musical performances, insurance coverage is (or should be) a vital part of the deal.  Insurance is expected to provide protection against key risks inherent in these productions, allowing the various participants to perform with a measure of security.  Errors in dealing with the various aspects of the insurance process, from allocating the responsibility to procure insurance to navigating the underwriting and claim process, can be costly. A panel of experts in the field will highlight major areas of concern and offer practical tips and advice on how to maximize the protection insurance is supposed to provide.

Participants on the panel will include Kirk Pasich and Cassandra Franklin, co-authors of New Appleman Sports and Entertainment Insurance Law & Practice Guide.

Further details on the webinar, including full information on registration, will be available soon.
