Douglas M. McIntosh, President of McIntosh Sawran & Cartaya, P.A., spoke at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American College of Coverage Counsel (ACCC) in Chicago, May 8-10. McIntosh, a panel participant addressing primary insurance carrier concerns, presented “How Great Minds Can Differ: Policyholder, Primary, and Excess Insurer Interests in Multi-State Litigation”.
The ACCC’s mission is to advance the creative, ethical and efficient resolution of insurance coverage and extracontractual disputes; to enhance the civility and quality of the practice of insurance law; to provide peer-reviewed scholarship; and to improve the relationships among the members of the insurance law profession. The ACCC focuses on educating all sectors involved in the field of insurance law – including the judiciary, legal and insurance professionals, law students and businesses – on cutting edge, emerging, and critical issues such as developing trends in insurance law and bad faith, trial practice and alternative dispute resolution, policy formation and claims handling. McIntosh has been an ACCC elected Fellow since 2013.
McIntosh will also co-chair the ACCC’s 2019 Annual Law School Symposium, slated to be held this fall at the Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad College of Law, in Fort Lauderdale. ACCC Fellows will present a variety of topics on “Insurer Bad Faith: Best Practice and Litigation Trends” at the outreach symposium for law students, faculty, and fellow professionals.
