"Been There, Done That! Now What Else Shall I Do?," Speaker/Moderator, the American Bar Association Section of Litigation’s Women in Insurance Network Annual Conference, October 2016.
The panel addressed the fact that in addition to negotiating coverage, deposing witnesses, arguing motions and trying cases, there other alternatives and challenges to your practice. This entertaining lunchtime panel of seasoned practitioners discussed alternatives to traditional practice with a firm, such as acting as mediators/arbitrators, becoming a broker, going in-house, or pursuing other alternatives to your practice, in addition to recent national studies reporting on implicit bias, issues affecting women in the workplace, and the resulting impact on compensation, partnership issues, and business development.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
