Atlantis-Biovent Negotiation: Confidential Instructions for Atlantis
This two-party exercise illustrates bidding strategy in the context of settling a large insurance claim. Specifically, the claimant (Biovent) and the insurer (Atlantis) are asked to submit confidential offers to a dispute resolution Web site that will determine whether there is room for agreement. This exercise is thus a vehicle for: 1) examining what sorts of bidding rules are likely to promote settlement and 2) exploring more broadly the emerging market for Internet-based dispute resolution services.
