In this episode of the Perspectives podcast, sponsored by NAM, National Arbitration and Mediation and hosted on, we’ll hear highlights from the December 10th presentation titled, The Practical Benefits of Resolving Coverage Disputes Through Mediation.

“A coverage dispute” is a wide net that broadly captures an array of issues encountered in the context of first-party claims, third-party claims and inter-insurer disputes – each of which, in turn, has various subsets, depending on the parties, policies, facts and damages in question.

Richard P. Byrne, Commercial Specialist at NAM, National Arbitration and Mediation, discusses the unique issues attendant to confronting and addressing insurance coverage disputes – with particular attention paid to the practical benefits of resolving these disputes via mediation.
