Sedgwick Supports the ACCEC Insurance Law Symposium
The American College of Coverage and Extracontractual Counsel (ACCEC) is holding its Insurance Law Symposium at the prestigious University of Michigan Law School on Friday, October 20, 2017, in Ann Arbor. Sedgwick San Francisco partner Bruce Celebrezze, ACCEC president, will preside over the event.
The one-day program, “Why Insurance Matters: Insurance as a Driving Force for Our Economy,” is designed to enhance and further the dialogue on the issues facing today’s insurance industry by bringing together insurance professionals and regulatory authorities to share insights. Topics include “From Rain Checks to Real Disasters: Insurance as the Necessary Grease in the Wheels of Commerce,” “How Transactional Liability Insurance Has Changed the Way Private Equity Firms and Corporations Approach Public and Private M&A Transactions,” “Good Faith/Bad Faith Claims Investigations: Information vs. Evidence — A Distinction With a Difference,” “Autonomous Vehicles and Aircraft: The Impact on Insurance” and “Crisis Management and Incident Response: Using Insurance as a Loss Mitigation and Business Resiliency Tool.” The keynote luncheon speaker is Kyle Logue, Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School.
Established in 2012, the ACCEC brings together pre-eminent lawyers representing the interests of both insurers and policyholders to improve the quality of the practice of insurance law and to increase civility and professionalism in its field. Its mission includes educating all sectors involved in insurance disputes — including the judiciary, legal and insurance professionals, and businesses — on critical topics such as best practices in policy formation and claims handling, developing trends in insurance law, and bad faith. Through its Board of Regents and its working committees, the college engages in a wide variety of activities designed to promote those goals, in addition to improving the civility and the quality of the practice of insurance law.
