This webinar examines the remaining 6 of 17 legal and contractual principles that can be used to successfully resolve claim disputes, including ambiguities (the 'mother' of all claim disputes), public policy, regulatory directive, statutory supersession, agency accommodation, duty of utmost good faith.

Learning Objectives:

  • Employ the power of ambiguity assertions using courtroom-proven legal principles such as noscitur a sociis and ejusdem generis.
  • Learn how regulatory and judicial resources can be employed to counter onerous contract language.
  • Learn how statutory resources can be employed to counter onerous contract language.
  • Understand when 'agency accommodations' are or are not appropriate and, in the latter case, what alternatives can be used to resolve claims as a matter of good faith.
