“Pre-Litigation Settlement Just Got A Lot More Demanding” Article Published in the Daily Journal

(filed under: In The News | January 6, 2023)

On January 5, 2023, Shareholder David Ezra and Associate Jamil Shaaban were featured in the Daily Journal for their article titled, “Pre-Litigation Settlement Just Got A Lot More Demanding.” Here, they discussed the recent implementation of SB 1155, a new California law that imposed stricter requirements on pre-litigated time limited settlement demands, and its effects.

To be considered a valid demand under this new law, SB 1155’s provisions require that generally demands must remain open for at least 30 days, starting from when the demand was transmitted, contain a provision that releases all insureds from all present and future liability for the incident, and settle all claims within policy limits, including all liens.
