The mission of this Committee is to marshal cutting edge extra-contractual knowledge, expertise, and resources to offer a strong platform of related educational programs for CLM members and other litigation professionals. The Committee will take a lead role in developing a framework for implementation of educational and collaborative programs for resolution executives; managers; and front-line professionals for proactive management of extra-contractual issues in multiline insurance settings to enhance good faith and achieve optimal results in resolution outcomes.

The committee’s work is practical as well as theoretical and seeks to produce results, protocols, and recommendations based upon facts gathered from multiple and representative sources. We welcome participation by CLM Fellows and Members.
