He not only practiced defending extra-contractual and coverage claims, but spent the bulk of his career at a carrier where he managed outside counsel in their defense of these claims. In fact, he might even be an expert on this topic as he has sprung his experience into his own consulting business. But today we got him for free! During his career he has witnessed the good and the bad..…and wants to share his tips and tricks to a successful deposition. But also how to manage your counsel to get the best results for your case.
