Claims and Litigation Management Alliance: 2019 Annual Conference
8701 World Center Dr, Orlando, FL 32821
Kathryn Whitlock is speaking on the topic "Handling Claims with Practically Perfectly Aligned Stakeholders." We all manage claims that have stakeholders with similar, but not identical, interests. The most obvious and common example for us is the tri-partite relationship. But the more complex the claim, the more likely it is that you will have multiple practically perfectly aligned stakeholders. Some examples are cases where personal counsel is involved, or where a lawyer/insurance agent/real estate agent has left the firm and both he and the firm are defendants, or where there is an indemnity claim. Given, among other things, increasing employee mobility, and the rise in the size of verdicts and settlements (which encourages cross claims and third party claims), it is expected that claims with these sorts of issues will increase. This panel presentation will highlight some of the applicable rules and also include an interactive discussion of practical problems and solutions drawn from real-world experience.
