Construction Litigation Through the Eyes of Millennials

September 23, 2016

Victoria Ersoff to speak at the 2016 CLM National Construction Claims Conference

Acclaimed trial lawyer Victoria Ersoff, a partner with WSHB, will be speaking at the 2016 CLM National Construction Claims Conference at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California, September 28-30th. Ersoff, whose innovative case handling has yielded an unbroken string of defense verdicts for clients involving complex issues of law, will discuss the emerging issues with the Millennial on the construction site, with insurance claims, and on the jury.

“All sectors of the American economy are impacted by the Millennial generation, and construction litigation is no different,” explained Ersoff. “By 2025, Millennials will make up as much as 75% of the workforce, which will shape the construction industry in all conceivable aspects from labor impacts to trial verdicts.”

This presentation “A Millennial State of Mind: A View of the Future of Construction Litigation Through the Eyes of the Next Generation of Professional” is slated to take place on Thursday, September 29th at 10:45-11:45 AM. Among other things, the panel will discuss the changing workplace and courtrooms as Baby Boomers and the older Gen-Xer’s retire, and the Millennials will become dominant as decision makers. “Changes will be greater than simply embracing technology, as decision -making processes are affected as well,” said Ersoff.

Joining Ersoff will be national thought leaders Larry Beemer and Tanya Garvis of QBE, Justin Siebert of The Hartford, and jury consultant David Zehner of Clarity Partners Trial Consulting. Together with Ersoff, the Millennial presentation will squarely address one of the hottest issues facing the construction industry from a claims and litigation standpoint.

CLM’s National Construction Claims Conference is the most comprehensive construction claims conference ever produced in the United States. In addition to addressing construction defect claims, conference sessions will address other facets of construction-related claims, including construction site accidents/injuries, coverage issues, subcontractor issues, and new technologies.

Ersoff is a litigation attorney with over 20 years of experience in all facets of complex litigation. She is nationally known for her expertise in defending commercial and business litigation, mold, and water damage, mass tort, and real estate and land-use litigation. Ersoff’s practice also includes the defense and prosecution of claims involving construction-related issues, employment defense, entertainment and new media, toxic tort and occupational exposure and environmental matters. Victoria has served as a Temporary Judge on the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
