An unparalleled faculty of in-house counsel, top litigators, renowned jurists and leading medical experts will convene and trade valuable pointers, strategies and insights on the most current techniques for litigating and managing asbestos claims.
American Conference Institute's Litigating and Managing Asbestos Claims conference, now in its 11th year, is renowned for its expert insight, sophisticated analysis and networking opportunities. The complexities surrounding asbestos litigation continue to change with new claimants, new targets and new jurisdictional hotspots. In the face of these changes, even the most experienced and tested asbestos participants find it necessary to constantly hone their skills and strategies to find new and creative ways to approach challenges.
Be at the forefront of evolving theories of liability and developments in asbestos medicine. It is crucial for the players in this industry to be up to date on all of the recent regulations, court decisions and scientific developments in order to properly develop strategies for upcoming and ongoing claims and litigation.
Remain ahead of the curve by fully understanding your clients' or your company's obligations under the extensive new Medicare reporting requirements that will become effective this year.
Now more than ever when malignant claims are dominating the marketplace it is important to understand the complex medical issues involved in asbestos litigation. Delegates will not only be updated on the latest scientific developments, but will gain insight on what juries actually respond to and special considerations when consulting an expert witness.
New theories of liability are becoming more prominent and can lead to costly and complicated defense strategies. This conference will help you streamline these defenses, and also drill down on the continuing impact of bankruptcies on asbestos litigation (including the use of bankruptcy trusts and the impact of recent filings on asbestos claims.)
In depth analysis of recent verdicts, settlements and case law will keep you informed of the best developing strategies for dealing with these new theories of liability and the latest strategies on the defense of these claims.
