Carving Up the Giving Tree: Allocation of an Underlying Settlement
Michael S. Olsan presents at the 2014 ARIAS-US Spring Conference. Through the use of a hypothetical fact pattern, Michael and his co-presenter lead a mock arbitration about how the allocation of a settled loss, as shaped by a decision tree, informed a reinsurance presentation. The argument centered around post-settlement allocation law and follow-the-settlements.
The 2014 ARIAS US Spring Conference centers its agenda on "Better Decisions," a theme designed to evaluate and analyze the many ways that ideas are turned into decisions, from selecting counsel and hiring an arbitrator to introducing evidence, dispute resolution and making a final award.
