SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT INDUSTRY CONTRIBUTIONS:

1975 – An early adopter of the concept that persons with JD degrees should be handling E&O/ D&O claims (now called Specialty Lines) instead of the Casualty Department claims staff. This was at a time when only 2 Independent Claims units, and 1 Insurer Claims Department did so. Subsequent meetings with Senior Corporate Executives at major insurers lead to the creation of their MPL claims Department similarly staffed which has since become an Industry Standard for Specialty Lines Insurers.

1978 – Created Loss Control Programs for Real Estate Brokers and Insurance Brokers.

1984 – Created tight Attorney Management & Litigation Guidelines as a TPA which were adopted by several mainline Insurers which included requirements for claim resolution plans.

1986 – Created Unique Qualitative Claim Auditing Techniques which required review of over 50 claim management issues together with a Computer system to track and generate statistical performance reports on an overall, divisional and individual basis. Such techniques were adopted by Internal Auditing teams at several Insurers & Re-insurers and made a permanent part of the LA Rapid Transit District RFP for Bi-Annual audits of their TPA. The initial 1986 Audit was the first time it was subsequently proven quantitatively that increasing claims staff expense to reduce per person case loads would result in a minimum overall total incurred savings of at least $5 to every $1 spent.

1986 Created Unique & Proprietary Claims Tracking TPA Software using Networked P.C.’s and a relational Database every bit as statistically powerful as mainframe systems at that time.

1994 – Contributed to killing the proposed NAIC Model Surplus Lines Act that would have made Surplus Lines Brokers financially responsible for the insolvency of Non-Admitted Insurers (a misguided response to the crisis created by phony offshore Insurers)

1990 – Present -Association volunteer work (PLUS) as noted above, lecturing and educational publishing as noted below.
