PDF American Agents Alliance Convention & Expo
Palm Desert, CA
September 25, 2015

Jeffery D. Farrow, Mark B. Robinson and Todd H. Stitt spoke on "Legal Pitfalls Arising from Broker-Agent Transactions," at the American Agents Alliance's 2015 Annual Convention and Expo. The presentation gave a narrative examination of legal issues that arise in a typical transaction where a broker-agent sells a policy to a business. Through the use of entertaining hypothetical transactions (that are all too common), they will highlight typical employment, trade secrets, E&O and regulatory claims that may arise. They offered practical suggestions on how to approach the sale of insurance by a broker-agent and avoid common missteps.
