December 6, 2007

Appellate Practice co-chair and Insurance Practice partner Laura A. Foggan has authored a chapter titled "Deciding Whether to Appeal," in a new guide to the practice of insurance coverage litigation law.  New Appleman Insurance Law Practice Guide is written from policyholder, insurer and judicial perspectives and provides step-by-step guidance on each phase of a coverage dispute, as well as strategies to help secure a victory. 

According to the publisher, the book directs readers through how to determine the merits of a coverage dispute and then whether and how to successfully arbitrate, mediate, settle, sue or defend. 

Ms. Foggan's chapter provides a broad overview of insurance coverage appeals, considers the basis for appellate jurisdiction, evaluates whether to appeal and what issues may be appealed, and examines special considerations in insurance coverage appeals.

The book is available here.
