Mass Arbitrations: Who Pays? Part II

Lowenstein Sandler LLP

Host Lynda A. Bennett, Chair of the Insurance Recovery practice at Lowenstein Sandler, welcomes back Freda L. Wolfson, Michael A. Kaplan, and Ruth Fong Zimmerman to continue their discussion on mass arbitration and mediation, taking a deep dive into what to do when a company is subject to a mass arbitration demand, or when a company has been asked to head off to a mass mediation. The panel emphasizes the importance of identifying the scope of valid claims early in the process and evaluating the exposure, particularly with respect to statutory claims. They also address how much information to share in negotiations, how to structure a settlement, and the role of insurance coverage for this emerging risk.


The Honorable Freda L. Wolfson (ret.), Partner and Chair, Alternative Dispute Resolution
Lynda A. Bennett, Partner and Chair, Insurance Recovery
Michael A. Kaplan, Partner, White Collar Criminal Defense
