PITTSBURGH, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Allstate, State Farm, Nationwide, Chartis, Travelers, Liberty Mutual and many more notable insurance companies participated in this year's National Association of Subrogation Professionals' (NASP) Subrogation Litigation: Skills and Management conference, March 24-25, 2011, in San Diego. The conference brought together subrogation attorneys, in-house counsel, service providers, experts and insurance professionals from across the nation. This year's conference experienced a fifteen percent increase in attendance over last year.
This year's conference was designed in an engaging "mock case" format that covered five tracks of subrogation specialty – auto, health, property, workers' compensation and expert – through a simulated trial from start to finish.
One of the highlights of the conference was the keynote speaker, Todd Winegar, a critically acclaimed continuing legal education presenter. Winegar educated and entertained with his presentation, "Trials of the Century," in which he used actual video as well as reenactments of some of the most famous trials of the century to demonstrate and analyze cross examination and final argument strategy.
Another very valuable feature of the conference was the Executive Forum that gathered together influential senior executives from insurance companies to focus on the business of subrogation and to participate in unparalleled networking opportunities. Kammy Poff of Allstate and Stacie McCullough of State Farm Insurance Companies chaired the forum.
In addition to the exceptional educational opportunities, attendees were able to interact in the sold-out exhibit hall with partners who service the subrogation industry.
The Subrogation Litigation: Skills and Management Conference is just one of the educational highlights provided by NASP. Next year's conference on March 22-23, 2012 at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona is already being planned. Those interested in attending, exhibiting and/or sponsoring should call 1-800-574-9961.
