Excellent presentation and discussion. Very thorough with quite knowledgeable and experienced speakers.

The Panel did a nice job of discussing issues to be aware of while representing clients.
Very engaging presentation on important ethical issues.

very good presentation with lots of useful material!
I would recommend it if the person wants CLE credit.
I thought this was exceptionally well done
excellent presentation of practical scenarios
Basic but useful review.
The real life examples were very interesting. The presenters deconstructed a complicated subject into digestible parts. I thought this seminar contained a good range of practical advice
I enjoyed this.
This program was very informative and applicable to the area of law that I practice.
The presenters were clearly experienced in the nuances of the issues presented, from both a practical perspective of advising clients in real world scenarios, as well as the formal legal standards to which attorneys must conform in those situations.
Very insightful and well done.
Excellent discussion and examples
The attorneys were knowledgable and experienced on this subject matter.
A great reminder that the insurance "panel" lawyer whose loyalties are intrinsically divided must hold loyalty to the client as a first principle.
Very informative and well presented.
Excellent course. Instructors worked well with each other and kept it interesting throughout.
Useful professional responsibility content.
thank you, this topic is always thought provoking and important to my practice.
Excellent discussion! Also, I want to hang out with these two.
Interesting subject well presented by learned counsel.....Thanks
Good recap of numerous ethical issues regarding client representation.
Very effective team of presenters. Highly recommended.
Clear, insightful, very helpful, especially as to role/ duty of attorney to insured and insurer
Excellent discussion of the potential conflicts facing defense counsel.
Issues I hadn't recognized!
Covers complex issues well
The presenters did a good job of making some pretty complicated issues in a very clear way.
This course made me think of past instances and how to handle future instances I may be confronted with.
Having practiced insurance defense for year I knew most of this. However, it was a good refresher course.
Great, very useful as I am at a new firm and new to the tripartite defense relationship
Very interesting seminar. Well worth the time.
Both were good speakers
Good program. While not all attorneys do insurance defense or insurance coverage work, at some point most attorneys will need to deal with insurance carriers and this sort of material is very useful.
Needed a few more case cites
Very well done.
The dual interaction style of the lecture was very good and appreciated.
Excellent! Very timely discussion of crime-fraud exception that applies to far more than insurance claims.
Very interesting information about where the lines are drawn. I'd be curious in learning about the obligations I may have when I learn an opposing counsel may be crossing the lines on conflicts, especially on situations where defense counsel is paid by an insurance company to represent a tortfeasor but may not be advancing full representation, such as bringing a dec action to determine a coverage defense is invalid.
Good and informative.
These guys are great at delivering material that they know is grey
Good presentation with good examples
Thank you. The delivery was excellent.
Excellent CLE with good examples for practitioners.
Both speakers are clear, concise and knowledgeable. Good presentation.
This was a good update.
This course is so practical and the speakers were extremely informative and held my attention.
This was great practical advice.
The program materials and presenters were excellent!
Presenters were excellent. The slides could have been in larger font, and more detailed.
This was great.
Very informative on the insurance issues I wanted to learn about
Very good instructors. Excellent program
I liked the sort of "converstion approach" between the twopresenters and in some ways made me feel as if I was there and listening to their conversation.
Very relevant seminar
Evan Schwartz and Matthew Conroy were fantastic. Enjoyed having them present two CLEs in one day. Has made a day of CLE webcasts more enjoyable than anticipated. Thank you.
I enjoyed the format of this one. I thought having them ask each other questions was great.
