Tick. . .Tick. . .Tick. . .KABOOM: Is Your Next Eroding Limits Policy Case the One That Explodes?
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 | 10:50 AM

The tripartite relationship remains an ethical and practical minefield. Conflicts of interest and extra-contractual damages threaten everyone. Verdicts in excess of policy limits surprise as attorneys and claims professionals work their way through high-stakes litigation. This presentation takes on the unexplored world of eroding policy limits and focuses on the difficult questions that are unique to defending claims arising from those policies. The panel will also address the perceived advantage of declining limits policies and whether they are worth the potential cost.

Eroding limits policies are fraught with peril and raise difficult issues – a time bomb we know is there and waiting to explode. This panel will help defuse the worry and offer practical suggestions and strategies for dealing with the suspense and avoiding the carnage.

Your Bias is Showing! Tips for Identifying and Overcoming Unconscious Biases in Settlement Negotiations
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 | 3:30 PM

You’re preparing for an upcoming mediation. You've evaluated the facts, good and bad. You've considered the legal issues. You've vetted your strategies with your client, partners, and claims professional. And hopefully, you've considered your opposing party's point of view and likely strategy. But have you considered how unconscious bias might affect your outcomes? No matter how enlightened, neutral, and free thinking you believe you are, biases are always at work whether you realize it or not. These unconscious biases extend beyond the obvious stereotypes associated with gender, age, or race and can even extend to certain types of plaintiffs, defendants, and cases. Your unconscious bias can unwittingly create barriers to successful resolution. Consequently, it is incumbent upon us as legal and claims professionals to evaluate those biases and take action to mitigate same. Following this presentation, attendees will have the specific tools necessary to accomplish just that.
