Barbara O’Donnell to Moderate September 14 FDCC Webinar

Barbara O'DonnellMark your calendars for this complimentary one-hour webinar designed to provide in-house claims professionals and outside counsel with practical advice and tools to recognize and effectively handle recurring sources of costly, and sometimes avoidable, bad faith claims. By drawing on their extensive experience in handling and litigating a wide array of bad faith claims around the country, our panelists will provide attendees with valuable guidance and insights regarding the following:
• Understanding the current contours of the bad faith landscape around the country, including an overview of some of the tactics plaintiffs’ counsel use to lay the foundation for high exposure bad faith claims; the known and the sometimes surprising “problem” jurisdictions; effective response to “set up” efforts; and the need to distinguish between internal and external sources of extra-contractual liability.
• Effective ways to lessen exposure to costly bad faith claims in “real world” environments where high claim volumes must be handled in sometimes resource thin claims departments, including ways to keep on top of the seemingly endless barrage of new decisions and legislative developments by establishing specialized teams to oversee bad faith claims, providing “hands on” training opportunities, partnering with trusted outside counsel and adhering to proven “best practices.”
• Lessons drawn from litigating bad faith claims around the country, including the factors considered in selecting bad faith counsel, the importance of selecting and carefully preparing company witnesses, the challenges presented by burdensome discovery requests, and important considerations in avoiding adverse trial and appellate outcomes.
