2018 Big Nasty Claims Conference – New York

September 20, 2018
12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

New York Law School
185 West Broadway
New York, NY 10013

 

New for 2018, Advisen will host a half-day conference, focusing on the phenomenon of big, nasty claims in the casualty sector. Mass torts and class actions with the potential to exceed $100 million take years to settle, tax corporate resources disproportionately, and often bring out the liability sharks.

Our agenda will explore loss trends and other big nasty claim insights, using Advisen data. Panels will address how companies can better prepare for mass torts and class action situations, addressing claims management best practice, carrier selection, limit adequacy, jurisdiction and other influential factors.

Who Should Attend?

Aimed at risk managers and claims professionals along with carriers, brokers, and attorneys, this inaugural event seeks to help all parties keep the sharks at bay.
