WSHB is pleased to announce that Jennifer Provost, a distinguished member of our legal team, has been invited to speak at the upcoming CLM Focus Conference. This annual event brings together leading professionals in the insurance, risk and litigation management fields for productive exchange of new insights and emerging trends.
The CLM Focus Conference is applauded for its mission to foster thought leadership, innovation, and best practices within both the insurance and legal industries. Jennifer will impart her extensive knowledge along with esteemed colleagues, Charles Taylor of Adjusting & Technical Services, Bryant Hall of Engle Martin, and Nick Sansone in a panel entitled “Victimless Crime: Think Again. Insurance Fraud and Understanding the Issues.” This presentation is set to take place on November 29, 2023 at 9:50 a.m. time at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel in New York City.
The panel will debunk the myth that insurance fraud violations do not have victims. This comprehensive session will identify and explain the types of insurance fraud as well as explore real life examples from the panelists along with participants. The session will also delve into the individuals or entities committing fraud and the overall impact from start to finish from the perspective of the claimant, insurance carrier, investigators, attorneys and other professionals.
