Monday, April 29 to Tuesday, April 30, 2013
The Union League, Philadelphia, PA

Now in its 24th installment, ACI’s Bad Faith Litigation series returns in Philadelphia with a multi-disciplinary, cross-country faculty including both policyholders and insures, top outside counsel, and leading jurists.

Bad Faith claims are being filed in record amounts and there’s no signs of it slowing down. Hotbed jurisdictions like Florida and California continue to create controversy. And other states are heading towards statutory bad faith laws. Outside counsel, in-house professionals, and policyholders must be prepared with the best strategies for resolving coverage disputes, managing discovery, and gaining the upper hand in bad faith lawsuits.

American Conference Institute’s 24th Annual Advanced Forum on Bad Faith Litigation has been fully updated to offer crucial developments and winning litigation strategies to even the most experienced bad faith litigators, and provide in-house counsel and claims professionals with strategic and proactive ways to reduce bad faith claims.  Get effective tactics from both the insurers and the policyholders and ensure the best result for your client.  This year’s conference will feature:
  • Insurers In-house roundtable: This specialized in-house panel will focus on 1) best practices in claims investigation and litigation decisions; 2) settling bad faith claims and working with outside counsel; 3) dealing with the insured; and much more
  • Viewpoints from the Policyholders Bar: Adapt your strategies to the new wave of claims being asserted and hear what key actions (or inactions) could lead your client into litigation.
  • Discussions with distinguished jurists: Get valuable insight on effective theories and evidentiary issues, from state and federal judges that have presided over bad faith suits.
  • Narrowly tailored panel sessions: Our narrowly tailored, comprehensive panels will shed light on the most effective ways to recognize bad faith set-ups, properly investigate a claim, litigate questionable coverage, manage discovery, respond to punitive damage claims and much, much more.
