April 25, 2018 - "Litigation v. Arbitration v. Mediation: Which is Better, When?"
Counsel assisting healthcare organizations and providers may often wonder how best to address disputes. When is it best to arbitrate, and when is it preferable to head for the courtroom? And where does mediation serve one's client best, whether as a preliminary effort at early dispute resolution, or as the main focus of one's efforts? In this BrownBag conference, three attorneys with wide experience as in-house counsel, as litigators, as arbitrators and as mediators share their experiences and insights. Members of the audience add their own considerable experience and questions. David Ellenbogen, Esq., is General Counsel for Scott and White Health Plan and is in the Legal department of Baylor Scott & White Health; David Cook, Esq., is a trial lawyer specializing in medical and legal malpractice defense, licensed in 1977 and an ADR specialist since 1997; Tony DiLeo, Esq., is a Life Member of the American Law Institute who has arbitrated or mediated hundreds of cases throughout the U.S. for international, national and local parties, with aggregate claims of over $2 billion.
