Dealing with Insurers in Mediation, How to Make Them Allies for Resolution

Insurance is not only an important part of most people's lives but it often a key aspect of mediation whether or not an insurer is even a party. Insurance issues can arise in many different types of disputes in several forms--liability, property, life and disability to name a few.

In his workshop, Steve will discuss how insurance issues can arise in a wide variety of disputes being mediated, and how to deal with insurers and their representatives whether they are a party or not. He will also focus on how to help make insurance a part of a successful resolution of the dispute instead of a hindrance.
