Sinkhole Summit 1.5

Last Friday, Sinkhole Summit 1.5 included several interesting panels, including one focusing on public policy aspects of the sinkhole insurance quandry.  The policy panel was diverse and consisted of Perry Cone (an insurance regulatory and corporate attorney with GrayRobinson, P.A.), David Salmon (a carrier defense attorney with Groelle & Salmon, P.A.), Ken Thomas (a policyholder attorney with Marshall Thomas Burnett), Tom Diana (an insurance claims executive and attorney with Homewise Insurance Co.), and panel facilitator Rebecca Leisure (with ROL Insurance Consulting).  Perry Cone spoke from his perspective as co-leader of the Florida insurance industry during 2005 when the Florida legislature first enacted landmark changes intended to reform the sinkhole insurance laws.

Held in Tampa, Sinkhole Summit 1.5 was attended by Florida insurance executives, claim leadership, both plaintiff and defense attorneys, engineers, contractors and others.  The conference was coordinated by ROL Insurance Consulting.
