Guest Speaker
David W. Ichel

Confronting a reinsurance industry that has not yet embraced mediation as a solution, mediator David W. Ichel will discuss with our group why mediation really works, how it works in his cases, how Zoom has transformed the world of mediation to an even better place, how to solve a mediation impasse and then open the floor for discussion as to why there has not been greater use of mediation in reinsurance disputes.
