Case Management for Staff Counsel, a component of Passport® Claims Defense, is a comprehensive solution that is designed to meet the unique needs of insurance staff counsel law firms. The solution increases staff counsel productivity and effectiveness, while also helping carriers to improve their overall expense and loss ratios.

The solution’s powerful case management capabilities – conflict checking, calendaring, document assembly, time tracking, advanced decision support tools, and more – equip staff attorneys to work more efficiently and to manage cases more proactively. This enables earlier resolution of the right cases and better preparation when cases must be tried. The solution also delivers management insight into cost and risk across staff counsel operations, which helps claims organizations to identify the most effective case strategies and control claims defense costs.

Case Management for Staff Counsel is one component of the Passport Claims Defense application. Built on Passport, our patented technology platform, Passport Claims Defense offers two modular, yet integrated, components: one supports claims professionals in their management of staff and/or outside counsel; the other supports the day-to-day case management needs of staff attorneys. Insurance carriers are able to use these components individually, or together as a comprehensive, integrated claims defense solution. These solutions are available for on-premise or dedicated hosted deployment, which offers each carrier the flexibility to select the option that best suits its company’s IT preferences and/or data security requirements.
