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.

He retired on December 31, 2015 from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP (New York), where he was one of the founders of the Simpson Thacher insurance practice and litigated a broad range of large-scale commercial litigation and advised corporate, association and individual clients for 37 years from 1978-2015. He also teaches Complex Civil Litigation at Duke Law School and the University of Miami Law School.  David is on the Mediation and Arbitration rosters of ARIAS-US, AAA, ICDR, Federal Arbitration, Inc., the CPR International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution, and the ICC/USCIB.  He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb) and has been appointed to serve on numerous ad hoc arbitration tribunals.
