More than 2,000 people attended the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles’ Annual Las Vegas Convention over Labor Day weekend where Drew Pomerance served on the expert panel “Red-Eye Breakfast: Hot Topics in Insurance Bad Faith.”
Pomerance outlined the differences between “advice of counsel” and “genuine dispute defenses” during his presentation. He discussed how to deal with a genuine dispute defense and identified key areas to attack a genuine dispute argument, including:
- Multiple issues
- Reliance on experts
- Disparity in amount awarded vs. demanded
- Finding evidence to raise inference of unreasonable conduct
He also emphasized the importance of establishing the existence of defense early on in order to obtain all privileged material and build an argument.
Recognized among the nation’s most experienced and successful trial lawyers, Pomerance is regularly invited to speak at legal and insurance/risk management conferences.
