Review key concepts of claims made and reported liability policies such as wrongful acts, loss, claims, conditions precedent, and notice applicable to both E&O and D&O policies
Outline extent of coverage for "professional services" under CGL and E&O policies for contractors and consultants
Discuss professionals' contractual limitations of liability and aggregation clauses
Discuss directors' liability for emerging risks including cyber and marijuana
