    Edwards Wildman's Matthew Murphy Emphasizes Value of Early Case Assessments in Law360

    News
    Matthew Murphy, attorney in Edwards Wildman's Insurance and Reinsurance Department in Providence, wrote an article analyzing how many companies are turning to an early case assessment program (ECA) that allows insurers to exert better and more informed control over litigation, monitor and identify litigation trends to control costs and develop methods to resolve cases more quickly in Law360. In the article, "Take Control Of Litigation With Early Case Assessments," the authors discuss how an effective ECA process is dynamic and may vary considerably with the nature of the litigation but includes many of the following elements: creating an ECA team committed to the process of developing and implementing a comprehensive litigation strategy; developing and implementing an ECA plan and litigation budget; creating a litigation infrastructure using discovery and knowledge management technology; and conducting after-action reviews to “audit” the effectiveness of the ECA plan and make adjustments for the development of future plans.
