Sometimes, the amount of work required to get the best results for clients is staggering. For a large pharmaceutical client, Michele Fields was able to put in the work to get her client the desired result — but it was no small task.

The company was splitting itself into two separate companies.

To make the deal work, Fields needed to conduct a deep dive into 15 years’ worth of claims data. The work took the better part of a year, but in the end, Fields was able to achieve $1 million in savings plus significant collateral reductions for the company.

Fields has experience across employment practices, general and products liability, clinical trials liability and numerous additional coverages.

In terms of her customer service qualifications, one client had this to say: “Michele is at the top of her league in customer service. She is responsive, thoughtful in assessing needs or requests, and draws on her experiences when considering next steps and plans of action.

“If Michele doesn’t have an immediate response or plan, she’ll solicit other perspectives and ideas to provide us with clear options and strategies. She strives for excellence and takes pride in her work, which is reflected time after time through our interactions,” the
client added.

Claims specialists are often their underwriting colleagues’ best friend, as they can advise them on policy wording. “The Conner Strong team would not be as successful as it is without her expertise, work ethic and follow-through,” wrote her nominator.
