Sullivan Hill’s Timothy C. Earl will be a panelist for an upcoming program titled, “Is it Safe to Get Back in the Water: COVID-19 Compliance and Claims for General Contractors in California and National Residential/Commercial Construction Projects” at the 2021 Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) Construction Conference. The program will address insurance coverage and contract issues impacted by COVID-19, inclusive of delays arising therefrom, with a focus on future contract and risk transfer analysis on key contractual and coverage contract issues. The panel will look at potential exposure and how to investigate and defend these claims, especially in the new hybrid litigation realm. The program will take place on Thursday, September 23, 2021 during the 4th session.
The CLM was created to meet the professional development needs of the claims and litigation management profession. Since 2007, they have provided their growing membership of over 50,000 professionals with opportunities to expand their knowledge and advance their careers through continuing education programs, networking events, industry resources, and designations. The CLM Construction Conference covers all aspects of insurance, risk, and claims management related to the construction industry and offers many networking opportunities with other thought-leaders in the industry.

Mr. Earl has also worked on appeals, including in the seminal Court of Appeal decision in Centex Golden Con Co. v. Dale Tile Co., 78 Cal. App. 992 (2000) which determined that a contractual indemnitor owed a defense obligation to a contractual indemnitee in a construction subcontract even though the indemnitor was not at fault.
