This webinar focuses on anecdotal and theoretical best practices from subrogation arbitration cases culled from more than 25 years of involvement with this industry. Going beyond the basics of contention writing and the rules governing arbitration, this webinar focuses on successful methodology for case presentation. Emphasis is given to the theory-and-theme approach of case structure and incorporation of evidence techniques in addition to strategic considerations that those involved in the process need consider. Overall, this webinar brings together hands-on practical tips to assist all advocates in their subrogation recoveries through arbitration.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to fully appreciate the intricate approaches to arbitration case presentation, including development of a complete theory and theme before the arbitrator and incorporation of the seven key types of evidence into your case argument;
