    On this episode of “Don’t Take No for an Answer,” host Lynda A. Bennett talks to Bill Denver, Special Counsel in Lowenstein’s Insurance Recovery Group, about how companies can secure coverage for long tail liabilities even when they do not have copies of the insurance policies that were issued decades ago to cover those damages and losses.  The duo discuss how to uncover these ancient, occurrence-based policies, or at least sufficient secondary evidence of them to prove the existence of coverage.  They also talk about why these policies are so valuable to provide coverage for sexual abuse, asbestos, environmental or talc risk exposures.
