ABA's Handbook on Additional Insureds
William C. Baton, Thomas S. Schaufelberger, Co-authors

William C. Baton and Thomas S. Schaufelberger, partners in the Insurance Practice Group, are co-authors of a chapter in the American Bar Association’s Handbook on Additional Insureds, titled “Notice/Late Notice," which covers notice of claims.

Because the duties that insurers owe to named insureds and additional insureds are separate, coverage for one does not always mean coverage for all. The effect of particular language may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and there are differences between how this plays out with “claims-made” policies and “occurrence-based” policies.
