Join me at the ACI Bad Faith Litigation Conference!

Tomorrow, I’ll be speaking at the ACI Bad Faith Litigation Conference in Orlando, Florida.  I will be giving the View from the Policyholder’s Bar on bad faith claims.  Here are additional details about the conference:

Tuesday, November 30 to Wednesday, December 01, 2010
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, Florida, United States

Why do so many defense counsel, plaintiff attorneys and in-house insurance professionals attend this event every year?

Because this unique event combines a multi-disciplinary, cross-country faculty from both sides of the issue, making it the event the industry relies on to get practical strategies for resolving coverage disputes, mitigating risk, and gaining the upper-hand in bad faith lawsuits.

Bad faith litigation claims are on the rise and showing no signs of slowing down. With juries returning larger than ever verdicts, the stakes are high for plaintiffs and defendants alike. Never has there been a more important time for attorneys and in-house professionals to be able to skillfully maneuver through the bad faith litigation process.

At American Conference Institute’s 21st National Advanced Forum on Bad Faith Litigation, the best and the brightest in the bad faith industry will share their insights and winning strategies on critical issues. Featuring:

  • A judicial panel with jurists from around the country;
  • A keynote address from insurance commissioners in two “hotbed” states;
  • An in-house counsel and claims examiner panel; and
  • Insights from the policyholders’ bar

No other conference in the industry allows you to interact with the leaders in the industry while hearing the theories and defenses that can turn cases for or against you!

Litigators who specialize in bad faith should attend this conference to get practical strategies and exchange tactics with some of the most successful lawyers in the country who bring and defend these cases regularly. Panels will shed light on the most effective ways to utilize the pleading stages to glean an advantage, developing evidence with an eye towards structuring dispositive motions, implementing credible case themes and properly managing discovery, among others.

In-house counsel and claims professionals know that as fast as insurance companies are responding to allegations of bad faith and implementing procedures to protect themselves from further litigation, plaintiffs’ counsel are creating new strategies for bringing – and winning – bad faith claims. Insurance professionals need to be at this conference to gain insights on new plaintiffs’ approaches and defense arguments so they can think strategically and proactively work to reduce bad faith claims.

This conference will provide even the most seasoned professionals with confi dence and clarity on today’s paramount bad faith issues facing the insurance industry. Come prepared with your most important and pressing questions and concerns to get the most out of this interactive conference.
