Winstead University: Protecting Your Clients from Insurance Insolvency

Presented by Rachel Giani, Keith Hopkinson and Carrie Rupprath


11:30 a.m.              Lunch available
12:00 – 1:00 p.m.   Presentation

Insurance insolvency law is designed with the primary goal of protecting policyholders – so what happens to everyone else? Lenders, vendors, reinsurers, investors, and other creditors often find themselves left holding the bag when insurers become insolvent. In this WinU, we’ll discuss what steps you can take, both on the front end and if an  insurer experiences financial trouble, to protect your clients who do business with insurance companies. Through a review of applicable law and some case studies, we’ll cover the following main points:

  • Background on state-based regulation of insurance companies.
  • Crucial contractual terms and general points to consider when doing business with insurance companies.
  • Insurer insolvency, including an overview of the receivership process and creditor rights.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
