Fortune, Fuller Serve as Professors at 2012 Litigation Management Institute
Arrowpoint Capital's Julie Fortune and Rich Fuller were among the professors for this year’s Litigation Management Institute (LMI), the first certification program specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the business of litigation management. Fortune is Chief Claims Officer at Arrowpoint, while Fuller is an Actuarial Associate and Statistical Specialist.
Julie has also been named a chancellor of the LMI, now in its second year.
The rigorous program, developed by the Claims & Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), is geared toward attorneys and those in the litigation management field with five to 15 years of experience. It is designed to bridge the gap between legal theory and litigation strategy, as well as to address the business aspects of litigation management. Participants who successfully complete the program are awarded the Certified Litigation Management Professional designation.
Rich led a course on “Reserving and Data Management,” which demonstrated how insurance carriers use information provided to them by their defense counsels to analyze and evaluate the financial considerations associated with each claim and to determine the appropriate total claim liability that the company maintains on its balance sheet.
Julie’s session focused on “Resolution Strategies,” which provided tools and techniques for law firms to use in resolving cases more quickly, becoming cost effective through the utilization of alternative fee arrangements and case-appropriate staffing, improving client communication and becoming better business partners.
The LMI presented a total of 10 courses.
Julie and Rich also served as instructors last year, along with Arrowpoint’s Ronnie Glenn and Ron Mazariegos. Claim Litigation Strategy Manager Terri Lichenstein and Attorney Domenic Di Noto received their designations at this year’s LMI, following Ron and Tina Zink last year.
