Philadelphia – December 2, 2008 – Legal and business matters dealing with the global, multi-billion reinsurance market will once again be the subject of high-level programs produced by Mealey’s Litigation Conferences, which also is launching a new report based on the many top-level presenters it delivers throughout the year. 


Coming up on its sixteenth year, the “Insurance Insolvency & Reinsurance Roundtable” is scheduled for April 22-25, 2009 at The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona.  This is the preeminent event for attorneys and executives who represent or work in the reinsurance industry.  Chairing the program will be Neal Moglin, Esq., partner with Lovells LLP; Debra Hall, executive director, Global Risk Coalition; and Peter Thomas, executive vice president and managing director, Willis Re.


“We continue to make adjustments to the program to reflect the constantly changing developments in global financial markets,” said Sharon Boothe, director at Mealey’s Conferences.  “We also have greater country representation on our faculty than ever before, with speakers from Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom – and  we’re not done yet.”  Boothe has been the conference director at Mealey’s Conferences since she ran the company’s first event in 1992. 


For attorneys and executives with a specific interest in arbitration, Mealey’s Litigation Conferences is producing “The Reinsurance & Arbitration Conference” on March 2-3, 2009 at the Westin Grand in Washington, DC.   Chairing this program will be Ann Field, vice president reinsurance claims and legal, Zurich North America; Joy Langford, Esq., Chadbourne & Parke LLP; and Elaine Lehnert, managing director, Veris Consulting, LLC.


With the faculty of these and its other reinsurance programs, Mealey’s Litigation Conferences is launching a monthly report named for its flagship event:  The Reinsurance Roundtable Continuum.”  Starting in January 2009, Reinsurance Continuum will provide interviews, insights and presentations not only from recent conferences and teleconferences, but also from programs that are still in development.


“We believe that we have a new way of connecting and educating our attendees throughout the year,” said Tom Hagy, publisher at Mealey’s Litigation Conferences.  “By delivering content from recent programs as well as upcoming conferences, the Continuum format will help keep the conversation going from one program to the next, while giving our speakers a new outlet for sharing their insights with a broader audience.”
