Judge Brown to Participate in Third-Party Subrogation Panel

ADR Systems


Hon. F. Keith Brown, (Ret.) will be speaking on a panel about third-party subrogation at the 5th Annual Workers’ Compensation Institute Conference on Thursday, March 1st.

The five-person panel discussion titled, “Third-Party Subrogation – Mediation of a Workers’ Compensation Claim and Third-Party Cases,” will be from 1:45pm-2:30pm.

He will speak with four other attorneys – two representing a plaintiff perspective and two representing a defense perspective. The session will primarily focus on the rights of an employer in a pending third-party case and how these issues are addressed in mediation.

“I want to dive into the complexities of multi-party settlements as they pertain to mediation,” Judge Brown said. “Within that, it’s important to discuss how to prepare for mediation by creating a strategy. There’s a higher likelihood of having a successful mediation when all parties have a strategy prepared.”

The conference is sponsored by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education (IICLE). It will be from 8:00am-4:30pm at the UBS Tower, located at One North Wacker Drive in Chicago. Registration is $329, and lunch will be provided. A DVD is also available for those unable to attend the live session. The conference is approved for 5.25 hours of General CLE credit and one hour of Professional Responsibility credit.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.®

We were pleased with the outcome of our settlement, and with the efforts put forth by Judge Bronstein.  It was a marathon session, but Judge Bronstein worked with both clients and urged us to be patient until there was sufficient movement towards settlement.  Thanks to Judge Bronstein and ADR Systems.
