About the Event

This conference marks an important milestone, the 25th anniversary of ARIAS•U.S.! In connection with this, the ARIAS•U.S. Board of Directors has spent part of the last year thinking about and developing a strategic plan for the next twenty-five years.

Please join us to discuss the future of ARIAS•U.S. and to hear the strategic plan, which involves making ARIAS a center of expertise for all insurance and reinsurance disputes.

In a break with the usual format, the conference will not kick off with a keynote speaker but with a session by the entire ARIAS•U.S. Board of Directors who will discuss the strategic plan and their vision for the next 25 years of ARIAS•U.S.; later in the day, conference attendees will be invited to provide feedback in smaller group sessions.

Rules for the Resolution of Insurance and Contract Disputes—Making an Expanded ARIAS a Reality
Thursday, October 3, 2019 | 10:40 AM - 11:30 AM

This session will provide an overview of the new rules and will highlight three key aspects: panel composition, ethical challenges, and option mediation. Next, we will explore the question of where we go from here. What are the next steps to obtaining further buy-in from the policyholder community, brokerage community, insurers and litigating counsel? How can/should ARIAS expand arbitrator certification and mediation training? How are the new rules relevant to ARIAS arbitrators, counsel and clients?

Michael D. Young, Esq.

Effective Mediation Strategies for Insurance and Reinsurance Disputes
Friday, October 4, 2019 | 8:30 AM - 9:20 AM

This panel will focus on the mediation of insurance disputes from the perspectives of policyholders insurers counsel, and re/insurance mediators. In addition to providing practical guidance on mediation process and advocacy, this panel will examine how mediations affect re/insurance, perceived bars to the mediation of re/ insurance disputes, and suggestions for making mediation more attractive to ceding companies and reinsurers.
