Mealey’s Emerging Insurance Disputes | July 16, 2020
By: Justin K. Fortescue, Zachery B. Roth and Marianne E. Bradley

The recent Covid-19 outbreak has altered life for all of us, in ways both big and small. Unprecedented restrictions
relating to the pandemic have forced individuals across the globe to change the ways in which they live and work. Perhaps not surprisingly, these restrictions have also changed the way we resolve disputes. Just as virtual conferencing has become the ‘‘new normal’’ for family gatherings and social events, it has also become the ‘‘new normal’’ for everything from mediation, to oral argument, to full-blown hearings.

Justin Fortescue Zachery Roth and Marianne Bradley discuss the advantages and pitfalls of virtual conferencing and proceedings for attorneys, clients and arbitrators.
