Shepherding Insurers Through The Mediation Process

Law360, New York (October 7, 2015, 10:27 AM EDT) -- While insurance lawsuits involving claims directly between an insurance company and its policyholder make up a relatively small percentage of our courts dockets, cases triggering liability insurance from automobile accidents to securities class actions constitute a very large percentage of all cases before our courts. Settlement of these cases requires the proper shepherding of the insurer(s) defending/covering the case. The participation of the insurer(s) at the mediation is necessary to the ultimate resolution of the case. The challenge is making sure that the insurer(s) are prepared to participate in the mediation in a meaningful way.
