American Conference Institute\'s Advanced Summit on

Fire and Casualty Claims and Litigation

Thursday, April 26 to Friday, April 27, 2012
Flatotel, New York, NY

ACI’s Fire & Casualty Claims and Litigation conference is an unparalleled opportunity to get up to speed on changes and updates in NFPA 921, evidentiary standards, and science while networking with scores of in house counsel, claims managers and risk adjusters.

Latest version of NFPA 921’s negative corpus rule….changes, updates and amendments to NFPA 921….fraud and arson…..selection and credentialing of cause and origin experts…..exclusionary causes….costly preliminary investigations….electrical damages… fire loss…product defect…..construction defect….the list goes on and on.

Recent developments to the NFPA standards and regulations have changed the fi re & casualty claims and litigation landscape. Now more than ever, attorneys need to be up to date with changes and amendments to NFPA 921. ACI’s lauded Fire & Casualty Claims and Litigation Conference, through its leading panel of origin and cause experts, will keep you apprised of the nuances and complexities of NFPA standards and regulations and answer the key questions of how will the negative corpus rule preclude a cause and origin investigation based on elimination and what credentials must cause and origin experts have in order to successful defend against a Daubert challenge.

To complicate matters further, often the first responders to a scene will fail to properly preserve evidence resulting in evidence spoliation. This conference will help you identify the unique issues as they relate to a fire scene (including how to identify a red herring when a critical piece of evidence is removed), establish a valid defense of lack of notice as a subrogation defendant, and draft a motion to exclude evidence and request instructions when exclusions are denied.

This is the premier Fire & Casualty summit that will shape the future of the industry’s claims and litigation strategies for leading litigators and in house professionals. This event is a must-attend event for cause and origin experts, insurance professionals and outside counsel involved with fire & casualty claims & litigation cases. You will not want to miss this unparalleled opportunity to obtain up-to-the-minute information and critical advice from the nation’s leading scientific and legal experts.
