IRMI publishes Perspectives on the Special Relationship: Wakefern, Tiara and Voss written by Stanley Lipshultz
Perspectives on the Special Relationship can be found in the August 2020 IRMI’s Insurance Law Essentials, Deep Dives. When the dust settles from the first party attempts to recover against their insurers failure, the second wave of litigation will focus on the agents and brokers. No question that the special relationship will be alleged by policyholder attorneys. This paper deals with three relatively recent cases involving the special relationship and may provide some insight into the coming second wave.
