American Conference Institute's Advanced Forum on

Reinsurance Disputes in Litigation & Arbitration

Monday, April 30 to Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Flatotel, New York, NY

There has never been a disputes-based reinsurance conference with a faculty as renowned as this one, including leading in-house professionals, federal and state regulators and distinguished jurists. By attending, you’ll not only get up to speed on the new claims, targets and hot spots, but the networking will be unparalleled!

With the growing contentiousness of reinsurance disputes and the constantly increasing time, expense and uncertainty of arbitration proceedings, it is critical that insurers, reinsurers and the outside counsel who represent them are able to devise and pursue effective strategies for success in disputes. Dodd-Frank, recent NAIC revisions and new priorities and trends in state regulation are already having a huge effect on the reinsurance industry, and with continuing fallout from catastrophic events, asbestos and other long tail claims it is important for companies and their counsel to get ahead of these potential disputes while ensuring the best strategies to resolve them in arbitration.

ACI’s Advanced Forum on Reinsurance Disputes in Arbitration and Litigation is designed to offer cedents, reinsurers, brokers, attorneys and other reinsurance professionals valuable insight into the dispute and arbitration process. Our faculty of regulatory and enforcement officials, renowned jurists, experienced arbitrators and leading outside counsel will provide insights and strategies for managing disputes and winning arbitration awards. Hear directly from insurance commissioners on NAIC action and the latest trends in state enforcement, as well as from leaders in the reinsurance industry, including in-house counsel from: Willis Re, SCOR, Aon Benfield, Chartis, Aspen U.S. Holding, The Hartford, RGA Reinsurance Group, Partner Re, Allstate, Liberty Mutual Group, Trans Re and RiverStone-US.
