About this event

Title insurance professionals and real estate attorneys work with various parties to a real estate transaction. Ethical and practical considerations can arise in dealing with underwriting counsel and claims counsel over the life of the transaction

Join us for a 70-minute, informative webinar session on how to identify these ethical issues, and how to address them as they arise. How do you deal with unrepresented parties? What is considered the unauthorized practice of law? How do you address situations with FIRPTA, hard money loans, tax title, and other matters? Hear from Doma Underwriting Counsel James Rogers and Doma Claims Counsel Jason Cobb, who will provide you with insights into these questions as they discuss the life cycle of a transaction and the various ethical considerations that come into play when working with outside counsel.

This training will focus on:

  • The role of underwriting and claims counsel
  • Who is your client?
  • Communication with third parties to the transaction
