ADR Systems

News

Judge John Ward, (Ret.) is scheduled to conduct a Q&A on ‘Negotiation and Mediation in Workers’ Compensation’ at Brice Downey & Lenkov on September 20, 2013. Taking the format of a ‘hands on, how-to’ discussion, the focus will be on mediation and settlement from the standpoint of a workers’ compensation lienholder. Judge Ward will give insight into helpful strategy and tactics for settlement issues presented at mediation and pre-trial conferences. Questions addressed will include: ‘What should be in the lienholder’s mediation or pretrial memorandum?’ and ‘How do we deal with a plaintiff or defendant who opens with a ‘presumption’ that the workers’ compensation lien will be waived?’

Judge Ward is a senior mediator and arbitrator at ADR Systems. His areas of expertise include personal injury, products liability, insurance coverage, professional liability, and workers’ compensation.

I want to express our firm’s appreciation to ADR Systems for providing us with an outstanding CLE program.  I received numerous positive comments from our partners; everyone thought that the Hon. F. Keith Brown and Stuart A. Nudelman provided us with useful and interesting insights.  I think that our Chicago partners (and anyone else who might do a mediation in Chicago) would be delighted with any of them as a mediator or arbitrator.
