Alex Potente Examines Bad Faith Insurance Cases in DRI Article

October 2017

Sedgwick San Francisco partner Alex Potente has co-authored the article, “The Ramifications of a Less-Than-Thorough Investigation,” in the October 2017 issue of the Defense Research Institute’s For the Defense. The article, written with Farella Braun & Martel LLP partner Tyler Gerking, examines the questions, “Can an insurer defend itself against a bad-faith claim with information that it did not know? And when should the insurer have known the information?”

Potente, who was assisted by San Francisco associate Heather Zacharia in the research and preparation of the article, is an experienced trial lawyer who represents insurers in complex commercial insurance litigation matters, with an emphasis on bad faith litigation and coverage issues arising from claims involving class actions, product defects, public sector liability and environmental and other long-tail insurance coverage disputes.
