American Bar Association Spring 2021 National Legal Malpractice Conference

April 14-15, 2021
Virtual

Christine Mast will be speaking at the American Bar Association Spring 2021 National Legal Malpractice Conference hosted by the ABA Standing Committee on Lawyers’ Professional Liability. Her panel is titled: The Eternal Sunshine of the Mediated LPL Resolution.

Description 

The vast majority of LPL claims are mediated. To achieve the best outcome, the essential skills, interactions, and choreography are imperative. Yet, there is little guidance on what it takes and how to maximize the effort and expenditure. This Session will take you through the entire playbook, from the initiation of the idea with clients and counsel, to timing and mediator selection, to briefing and the conduct of the session and the insights needed to anticipate and overcome obstacles along the way. Join our panel of highly experienced experts who will share best practices, tools, and tricky issues from beginning to end, a true front-row viewpoint to one of the most critical components of the claim process.
