Coordinating Multijurisdictional Defense Using Milestones: Construction Defense Webinar

Join Us for This Live Webinar on Monday, August 2, 2021 at 12PM EST

In this live webinar, “Coordinating Multijurisdictional Defense Using Milestones,” Tashia Rasul, partner at Lois Law Firm, explores the likely milestones to be reached in each jurisdiction. At each point, consideration should be made as to whether to convene a meeting of necessary stakeholders to decide on a unified course of action. Where a decision does not need to be made, these milestones serve as a marker for a meeting to be held between defense counsel to update as to the progress of each case.

Tashia will discuss the following:

  • Workers’ Compensation defense milestones.
  • General Liability/civil litigation milestones.
  • How to convene a meeting of stakeholders.
