Tashia Rasul on Best Practices in Dual Jurisdiction Claims at CLM Annual Meeting

LOIS Partner Tashia Rasul will participate in a panel “Best Practices for Dual Jurisdiction Claims” at the CLM Annual Conference in Orlando Florida on March 14, 2019. This is one of the largest professional conferences of its kind in the country, with more than 2,000 participants and the presentation explores the role of workers’ compensation defense counsel in coordinated multiple-jurisdiction cases. These types of cases are common in the New York construction litigation arena, where project owners and construction entities are often defending civil actions brought under New York’s Labor Law and a workers’ compensation claim prosecuted before the New York Workers’ Compensation Board.

Rasul leads the construction practice at the firm and represents a wide array of clients in the defense of workers’ compensation claims before the New York Workers’ Compensation Board, including construction contractors, general contractors, project owners, developers, architects, engineers and other professionals in all aspects of construction litigation.

LOIS is consistently regarded as a Firm that fights for construction clients with an unmatched track record. The Firm’s lawyers use their expertise and years of experience handling construction cases to fully defend construction injury claims. “I make a difference for my clients because I am hands-on with my cases,” says Rasul. “Sitting behind a desk and appearing in court comprise only a fraction of what I do for my clients. I visit constructions sites so I can learn about the projects and what is important to my clients. I also visit the sites so I can meet with the key players face-to-face, observe the accident location, and develop defense strategies.”

With six attorney partners and more than 17 associate attorneys, LOIS prides itself on giving each case the complete attention it deserves and requires at every step of the legal process. “Our promise to clients is that we will aggressively defend their case. We begin envisioning how the trial plays out the first day we take on a new matter from the client, ” says managing partner Greg Lois. “That has always been our recipe for success and my partner Tashia Rasul exemplifies the type of strong, dedicated advocate that we think best represents our clients.”

“I believe this approach makes a difference for my clients because it allows me to obtain first-hand knowledge of the job-site and where the accident occurred, as well as the parties that were involved, resulting in a well-rounded understanding of the underlying details of the case,” says Rasul “This in turn helps me to determine the evidence I need so I can piece a defense strategy together.”
