Project Wrap Insurance Policies
Defense of Claims Under Wrap/Wrap-Up Insurance Policies
The use of “WRAP” or “wrap-up” insurance coverage in construction projects has become increasingly common in recent years. Wrap insurance is generally designed as a single policy issued by an insurer to cover the liability risks of the developer, general contractors, and all subcontractors involved in a construction project. A wrap policy is designed to provide insurance protection to all participants in the construction that "opt in" or are required to participate under the wrap coverage. Nonetheless, important issues can arise regarding the extent of coverage and the relationship between the wrapped entities because of wrap policy exclusions and policy limits that might not be sufficient to match the amount of the claims. In some cases, policy shortfalls can create unique conflicts that require the assistance of a lawyer experienced in this area.
Our construction lawyers have been managing wrap policies and related projects since the inception of this type of insurance product. Our lawyers advise insurance companies, owners, general contractors, and subcontractors about the defense of claims under a wrap-up policy. We have the expertise to represent the participants in a wrap or individual companies in need of separate counsel.
