Mediate or Prolongate? Webinar from our Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence Team

By Matthew Best, Senior Underwriting Manager

During 2020, Temple held several well-attended webinars on key legal and costs topics. These platforms have allowed the large number of participants to meet virtually and gain a deeper understanding of the topic in question – whilst allowing us to engage with an audience of like-minded legal services providers.

The latest webinar from our Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence Team, entitled ‘Mediate or Prolongate?’, is in two parts – part 1 is 65 minutes long and part 2 is 71 minutes. The subject matter is definitely a hot topic, with a great balance of fact, opinion and sharing of both knowledge and experiences. We hope you find it useful and thought-provoking.

  • The event was hosted by our Senior Underwriting Manager Matthew Best, Solicitor Services Manager Lisa Fricker and Senior Underwriter David Stoker – with Paul Balen (Director of Trust Mediation Ltd) as guest speaker.
  • We don’t just talk the talk on this subject; as you may well know, Temple has wholeheartedly supported mediation for a number of years. To show our commitment is genuine, we offer mediation incentives within our clinical negligence ATE policies.

Temple Legal Protection is committed to bringing you the latest developments in clinical negligence and personal injury direct to your desks. Our online communications include hot topics such as Covid-19 claims, disbursement funding interest recoverability and key judgments from the courts.

Enjoy the webinar and join our virtual journey through this changing and challenging time.
