Abstract:     
This is the third in a series of articles on insurance defense ethics. It is grounded in a loss-minimization account of liability insurance contracts, according to which the contract seeks to construct an artificial harmony of interest between a carrier, a policyholder, and their joint agent - a defense lawyer - for the purpose of minimizing the sum of the costs - including indemnity and defense costs - that are associated with a covered claim. The article contains no formal economic analysis, but does advance the economic analysis of the law that governs lawyers.
