Jeffrey Van Volkenburg, a leading insurance practitioner in West Virginia, discusses his experience litigating in a jurisdiction where many coverage questions remain unresolved. Jeff describes the importance of crafting nuanced and creative arguments, as well as strategic considerations in initiating coverage litigation in a jurisdiction with underdeveloped insurance law. Jeff then opines as to how West Virginia’s coverage law will advance in the coming years, especially in light of the ALI’s Restatement of the Law, Liability Insurance. Notably, Jeff recorded his episode while at the McNeer Highland firm, although he has since started his own firm with another podcast guest, Debra Varner. The firm’s name is Varner & Van Volkenburg PLLC.
