Successfully Managing the Insurer/Employer Relationship

Successfully Managing the Insurer/Employer Relationship

Sep 26, 2018

Employers and their insurers (and other third-party vendors) typically work together in a harmonious fashion to provide a broad range of employee benefits to employees. However, there are numerous traps for the unwary in managing the employer-insurer relationship particularly with the increased regulatory and compliance demands on employers and insurers. It makes sense for the parties to spend time at the front end to properly set expectations and understand the needs of the employer. In doing so, potential conflicts around the following topics can be avoided and/or minimized at claim time.

Strategic Discovery in Construction Cases: Framing Effective Inquiries, Furnishing Necessary Responses and Budgeting for Cost Control

Sep 27, 2018

This webinar will explore the most effective ways to develop a discovery strategy for construction cases. We will identify the primary project witnesses, facts and data; how to draft effective interrogatories and document requests with a focus on key events and milestones during projects; constructing a meaningful Electronically Stored Information protocol for the exchange of email and other digital records; and concerns for preserving privileged communications. We will also compare discovery strategies depending on whether the dispute is in arbitration or courts of law.

The advent of digital recordkeeping has dramatically increased the burden of discovery in litigation. Parties to disputes and their counsel need to evaluate the scope of discovery early in a dispute and to create a discovery budget and plan for success. The presenter has drawn upon decades of investigation experiences to apply his best evaluative practices to the rapidly changing digital age.
