JSH partner Gary Linder will join a panel of experts to present “Social Inflation and Other Factors Driving Liability Claim Costs” during the 2020 Claims & Litigation Management (CLM) Focus Conference.

In today’s environment, businesses must contend with social inflation, nuclear verdicts, broadening definitions of liability, and an increasingly litigious society. Large, unexpected claim costs can have a notable effect on a company’s bottom line. The question is whether these tendencies are real and if businesses can develop strategies to address them. This session will review recent liability trends and identify some of the strategies and best practices that are emerging in today’s environment.
