Soha & Lang, P.S. Shareholder Paul Rosner, J.D., CPCU has been selected to Chair the Coverage, Litigators, Educators & Witnesses Interest Group (the “CLEW IG”) of the Institutes CPCU Society for a three year term beginning on January 1, 2017.
The CLEW IG was founded in the 1990s as a home and resource for a diverse segment of CPCU Society members whose professional paths tended toward independence: attorneys representing or counseling insurers or insureds in claims and coverage matters and industry professionals putting their experience and expertise to work as consultants or as witnesses in contested insurance-related matters. When the group formed, the CLEW acronym stood for Consultants, Litigators & Expert Witnesses. Today, those initials stand for Coverage, Litigators, Educators & Witnesses, and CLEW’s members include CPCUs whose emphasis is on technical research and on the development and spread of insurance knowledge in universities and through continuing professional education. CLEW activities include presenting one or more educational programs at the CPCU Society Annual Meeting, which commonly include a “Mock Trial”; publication of articles in CPCU Society publications and other industry journals; and a growing number of webinars through the Society. Participation in these activities provides CLEW members the opportunity to interact with, and to share their technical expertise with, fellow industry professionals.
Paul’s practice focuses on representing insurance companies and risk pools in insurance coverage matters and bad faith litigation in Washington and Oregon. Paul is also a claims handling and bad faith expert with over 15 years of industry experience as a claims professional.
Please feel free to contact Paul if you have questions about the CPCU designation, the CPCU Society, the local PNW (Seattle) Chapter, the CLEW IG, or about insurance coverage issues.
