Join Wilson Elser Insurance Coverage partners Jennifer Martin, Daniel Tranen and Paul White for a discussion of expected first-party claims associated with the ongoing civil unrest. 


  • Specified risks
  • Civil authority coverage
  • Physical loss requirements
  • Voluntary vs. mandatory shutdowns
  • Policy conditions and the insuring agreements or exclusions that specifically identify civil unrest activities
  • Whether coverage is impacted if insured property was already vacated due to COVID-19 

Additionally, the panel will explore how various coverages, conditions and exclusions are likely to respond to the recent unrest and the problems with proof of loss – especially for business interruption coverage – for business owners and property owners in communities that are reopening following the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.
