Womble Carlyle attorney Lisa Bondurant will moderate an international panel discussion at the International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) Annual Meeting.
Bondurant will moderate a discussion titled “Insurers and International Claims—Traps for the Unwary!” What are the implications for insureds and insurers? Are obligations owed by the primary lead to followers or excess layers in other countries? How can documents be obtained or witnesses examined? Can judgments or awards be enforced? The panel will examine all these questions and help attendees gain an understanding of different dispute resolution techniques and differing coverage concerns, which can be paramount to practitioners from the United States and internationally when advising their clients on these issues.
Joining Bondurant in the discussion will be Rod S. Attride-Stirling of ASW Law Limited in Hamilton, Bermuda; Mylène Côté of Liberty International Underwriters in Montréal; and Julian Miller of DAC Beachcroft in London. The discussion takes place July 12.
Bondurant is the Chair of the IADC’s Insurance and Reinsurance Committee.
