BERWYN, Pa. — HB Litigation Conferences LLC President Tom Hagy has announced the selection of chairmen for two programs for insurance and reinsurance attorneys and in-house counsel.

The first, “Reinsurance Claims & Dispute Resolution,” will be chaired by Ann Field of Zurich North America, Joy Langford of Chadbourne & Parke, and Elaine Lehnert of Veris Consulting. The conference will take place Sept. 10, 2009, at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 36th Floor Boardroom, in New York City.

The “Reinsurance Claims & Dispute Resolution” event is free for insurance and reinsurance company attorneys and executives. The regular admission fee is $595.

The second event is “All Sums, Reallocation & Settlement Credits.” Hagy said the chairmen will be Franklin Cordell of Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell and Eileen McCabe of Mendes & Mount.

This event, designed to accommodate busy schedules, will be held at The Hub Cira Center at 30th Street Train Station in Philadelphia, with a 10 a.m. start time to make it easier for attendees to “train in and train out” in the same day from cities along the Northeast Corridor. Attendees from New York and Washington, D.C., for example, can arrive at the event within two hours of leaving Penn Station or Union Station.

Discounts, generous group rates, recordings, and sponsorships are available for both events, which are fully accredited for CLE, or continuing legal education.
