(RIVERWOODS, ILL., August 31, 2006) – Professionals engaged in insurance coverage litigation now have a comprehensive electronic resource to meet their research and drafting needs. The Insurance Coverage Litigation Integrated Library brings together the resources of Aspen Publishers and CCH to provide professionals with expert insights, proven legal strategies, cases and litigation forms in a single, online resource on the CCH Internet Research NetWork. Aspen Publishers and CCH are brands of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business.

“The Library gives professionals premier insurance treatises from Aspen Publishers such as the Handbook on Insurance Coverage Disputes by Barry R. Ostrager and Thomas R.

With the entire library, subscribers have access to proven strategies and on-point legal authority for resolving contested coverage claims, clear analysis of controlling case law and reliable references to current policy language, as well as litigation forms covering every stage of the insurance dispute for all major types of insurance actions.
