As the world continues to change at a rapid pace, there are significant impacts to the insurance industry and staying relevant becomes even more crucial to our industry's business success. Judge Kaye's empowering keynote speech at the ARIAS•U.S. Fall 2015 Conference addressed this very issue and in planning the 2016 ARIAS•U.S. Spring Conference, conference organizers have designed a program that will look at how we can stay current and remain ahead of these rapid changes. The Spring Conference will also continue to explore neutrality and the new rules in action. We will hear from a panel that followed the ARIAS•U.S. newly adopted neutral panel rules and learn from their experience. When discussing neutrality, we will go beyond the procedural aspect and focus on important underlying issues such as unconscious bias and the role it should not play in the arbitrator's decision making process. Industry experts will discuss developing issues and products, and we will hear from executive officers within insurance and reinsurance companies on emerging risks to better understand how these companies stay relevant and ahead of the changes that will continue to transpire.

Robert Cusumano is speaking at this event. His topic: "A View from the Top." Deirdre Johnson, who is one of the program co-chairs, is also the moderator on the topic: "Judicial Perspectives on the Neutral Decision Process." Paul Kalish is moderating an in-depth discussion of the substantive and arbitration-specific issues arising out of the direct insurance Bermuda Form. Ellen MacDonald Farrell is moderating a session focusing on updates on Cyber Risks from regulatory, litigation and insurance coverage perspectives.

Crowell & Moring is a sponsor of this event.
