ABA Fidelity & Surety Law Committee Conference – Philadelphia, November 8, 2018

Chris McKibbin will be presenting at the 2018 ABA FSLC Fall Meeting in Philadelphia.

This year’s program is entitled “An Analysis of Fidelity Claims for the Modern World.” The program will address important substantive and practical issues germane to today’s fidelity claims handling. Program Chairs Robin Segal-Gonzalez and Justin Wear have designed a lineup of presentations that will update participants on recent developments and claims handling strategies. The focus will be on a pragmatic discussion and implementation of specific skills with an eye toward pressing legal issues, ethical issues, and strategy. The topics include developments in cybercrime; a comparison of employee dishonesty vs. theft wordings; policy conditions regarding notice and proof of loss, as well as filing of suit; and causation in the context of fictitious collateral cases.

Chris will participate in the panel entitled The Fidelity Recovery Playbook: Practical Strategies for Maximizing Recovery. Topics include the use of Interim Recovery Agreements (also known as Mitigation Agreements) to “jump the gun” on recovery efforts before the carrier is in a formal subrogation position, and practical litigation and tools carriers can use to maximize recoveries against defaulters, confederates, third-party beneficiaries, auditors and banks.
