What is the Big "I” Legal Services Hotline?
The IIAW's General Counsel is Josh Johanningmeier (pictured at left). The Association frequently receives member inquiries seeking advice that requires legal counsel. In many instances, the questions can be answered quickly by Josh and the experienced legal team at Godfrey & Kahn.
The Association believes that extending Hotline Legal Services—through Godfrey & Kahn on a limited basis and at no cost to member agencies, is a valuable addition to the extensive services available to Big "I" members.
Hotline Legal Services are available to all current Association member agencies at no charge, subject to the general guidelines listed on the reverse side.
Hotline Legal Services is restricted exclusively to insurance or agency operations questions. The service is not available for personal legal questions.
