Gene also has arbitration and mediation experience with the following insurance products:
Commercial Liability Policies
These polices provide protection from third-party claims against the insured arising out of an occurrence that caused property damage, personal injury or wrongful death.
Professional Liability Policies
These policies provide protection from third-party claims against the insured arising out of professional negligence (errors and omissions) that caused property damage, personal injury, wrongful death or business interruption and economic losses.
Builder’s Risk Policies
These policies provide all-risk protection from property damage arising out of an event that occurs on a construction project prior to substantial completion of the construction work.
Excess Liability Policies
These policies provide an additional amount or limit of insurance coverage when the amount of coverage available from the underlying liability insurance policy is exhausted.
These treaties allow an insurer to spread its financial risk under an insurance policy or line of business among multiple insurers to limit the financial exposure in the event of a catastrophic loss.
Payment and Performance Bonds
The contractor provides these bonds to the owner of a construction project. An insurer or surety company guarantees the bonds to ensure payment to the contractor’s subcontractors and suppliers and the completion of the contractor’s work.
