1/24/2022 Speaking Opportunity! – Keeping the Claimants At Bay - The Immediate Response and Allocation of Resources Needed to Fight the Good Fight – Workers Compensation and Retail, Restaurant & Hospitality Conference in Chicago, Il on May 18-20, 2022

The session is designed to bring to light the changing landscape of claims (and large verdicts) and the more than ever pressing need to allocate the necessary resources, defense counsel, and possibly experts on the front end instead of the seemingly consistent "reactive" playbook that Adjustors and Risk Managers have relied upon for adjusting and settling quickly and efficiently. With good Plaintiff Lawyers keeping less than twenty (20) cases on their docket and our side generally 100+, how to properly allocate your forces in the best possible way.

10/4/2021 Speaking Opportunity! – When the Mask Comes Off: Jury Trials Post-Pandemic – Chicago, Il on October 19-20, 2021

Needs 2 fellows

Jury trials have been vastly changed by COVID-19, forcing courts, judges, and lawyers to handle cases in new and challenging ways. Whether it is conferences, jury selection and trials via Zoom, the pandemic has put a strain on what is regarded as normal in litigation and advocating zealously for a client. Further, jurors, witnesses, and lawyers in masks may hinder communication and understanding, as it can be difficult to evaluate whether jurors are following arguments and testimony. Social distancing and safety protocols will require a more efficient court process as well. Jurors, lawyers, judges, and witnesses will have to adjust on the fly to the new and ever-changing circumstances to best perform in their respective roles. Get ready to discuss all of that and more in this interactive session.

Please contact tori.snoddy@theclm.org if you are interested.
