Maximizing Recovery from Insurance Companies as Independent (Cumis) Counsel

Learn when and how to be appointed as Cumis counsel for your client. Get paid more from, and faster by, insurance companies when defending an insured as independent counsel. We will discuss and provide a substantive reference guide on the essential Cumis counsel issues, including how to tender the claim, conflicts of interest and who controls the defense, responding to insurer demands and defenses, hourly rates, timely payment, the result of late payment, etc. If you represent a plaintiff, learn how independent counsel can help get your case settled and how the conflict between the insured and insurer can work to your benefit.
