Orange, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
Michael Caspino, Founding Partner of Brady, Vorwerck, Ryder & Caspino, was named the Litigation Management Professional of the Year in the Outside Defense Counsel category during last week’s Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Alliance Annual Conference in San Diego. Caspino was chosen by the CLM Advisory Board members in recognition of his contributions to the industry and his clients.
Caspino is a leader in the areas of alternative fee arrangements and strategic claims management. Using a mixture of AFAs and a strategic approach to defense efforts in construction defect claims, he was able to achieve a 33 percent reduction in defense costs, a 42 percent reduction in indemnity costs and a 61 percent reduction in average file cycle times. Mr. Caspino is a frequent speaker on AFAs and shares his knowledge and advice on the topic with many insurance companies and even other law firms.
He is a pioneer in litigation management techniques that have been successfully used in strategic claims management. His analysis and implementation of case resolution methodologies across large books of claims, as opposed to a “one-at-a-time” approach to claims resolution have proven to be highly effective in resolving cases and saving clients money. For one book of workers’ compensation claims, he was able to resolve 55 percent of serious injury cases within eight months, even though they had been deemed “unsettleable” by the previous law firm managing the cases.
In addition to his work in the litigation management industry, Caspino is an active community member, serving on the Board of Directors for both Casa Teresa (a home for pregnant, homeless women in Orange County, Calif.) and Serra Catholic School (the largest Catholic elementary school in the country). He’s also involved as a Little League coach and is the President of Legatus, a Catholic business leadership group. Recently, he received the "Man of Character Award" from the Orange County Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
