BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Peter A. Halprin is best known for his work on insurance recovery cases related to cyberattacks, natural disasters, regulatory investigations and class action lawsuits, and COVID-19 claims. He worked with his colleagues to develop a comprehensive Legal Alert to address pandemic coverage issues and also led the COVID-19 Insurance Litigation Virtual Summit.


What’s a lasting effect of the pandemic on the way you work?

The pandemic and working in isolation really highlighted to me how enjoyable it is to be in a collegial atmosphere of collaboration with your colleagues.


What’s your advice on navigating the current insurance market?

Premiums are generally on the rise, coverages are often being restricted, deductibles and retentions are going up, and so I think policyholders really need to scrutinize coverage options that are available to them.


What’s a problem that needs fixing in your sector?

Making sure that people have an appropriate work-life balance and that they’re able to rest, relax, recuperate before returning to the office. Working from home and having no division between hours worked and where you sleep is a difficult combination.


What should the industry do to attract more young people to work in it?

Highlight that insurance is exciting. People don’t realize how many things it touches and how integral it is to the functioning of business and the economy.


What is something about you that would surprise people?

I have very diverse interests. I can find myself falling down rabbit holes, (for example) to try to study Moldavian politics. At the same time, I’m very happy to watch the silliest new reality show.


Favorite hobby or pastime?

I’m a huge football fan, particularly a big fan of the New York Giants.
