Drawing on the experience and perspectives of USLAW retail clients, this program will discuss how open claim reserves impact P&Ls and companies’ overall litigation strategy. Clients will share their strategies and the tools they have successfully used to set appropriate reserves. We also will continue to explore the interplay between the self-insured and excess carriers when the case evaluations pierce the excess layer. Not only will clients have an opportunity to learn from one another, but outside counsel will better understand the role they can play and the importance of assisting clients in establishing proper case reserves. Content is created for attorneys, TPSs, in-house risk managers and claims people, insurers and anyone interested in hearing about the latest in claim reserves strategies.
