FHMS Publishes 2 Articles in Claims Litigation Magazine

Fowler Hirtzel McNulty & Spaulding recently had two articles published in the Claims Litigation magazine.  The publication is presented by the Claims Management Alliance. CLM is the largest professional association in the insurance industry with a membership of more than 35,000 professionals in the claims resolution and litigation management industries.

FHMS Managing Partner Joe Fowler partnered with Steve Schorr of DJS Associates on the article, Self Driven-The Path Towards Autonomous Vehicle. The article discusses the numerous legal issues which will arise as the march toward self-driving vehicles moves forward.

John Sparks of FHMS  and Dan Winkler of Westfield co-authored the magazine’s cover article, Budget Defended- Building a Strategic and Successful Budget Road Map. The article discussed the need for lawyers and insurance companies to use the budget building process as an opportunity to create and refine a collaborative case map that addresses both the certainties and the strategic options of a particular case. A focus on the budget as an evolving road map of case strategy, instead of a mere number, will provide an enhanced case focus and a fair monetary perspective on each case. This will result in a stronger partnership between claims and defense counsel.
