Event Description

Arbitrators and umpires play different roles in the typical U.S. reinsurance arbitration.  This year’s seminar will focus on the difference in those roles as they impact key decision points on the road to a hearing.  The faculty for this program are arbitrators who have extensive experience both in the role of a party-arbitrator and in the “middle chair” and will feature a lively discussion of how their role in a particular case impacts their approach to the hard decisions.
