Daniel Berman to Speak at 2015 CLM Litigation Management Institute

October 19, 2015

National thought leader/expert on AFA Issues to share AFA expertise at prestigious program at Columbia Law School

WSHB’s Dan Berman is scheduled to share his expertise on successfully implementing Alternative Fee Agreements (AFA’s) at the 2015 CLM Litigation Management Institute hosted by Columbia Law School in New York City from October 22-25. The Litigation Management Institute (LMI) is the first certification program specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the business of litigation management. The rigorous program is geared toward attorneys and those in the litigation management field with 10 or more years of experience.

“Litigation costs are challenging due to the unknown variables which lie along the path of any litigated case,” said Dan, co-founder and Chairman of Wood Smith Henning & Berman. “Being able to align the objectives of our clients in case resolution while providing an incentive to both the client and law firm is a difficult but achievable task when everyone sits down at the table with an open mind.” Dan will serve as a defacto professor in residence to the many attendees of the LMI which include a host of general counsel, risk managers, claim professionals and lawyers seeking out information on how to formulate, implement and successfully measure results with AFA’s.  He also will discuss at length the key issues of ensuring quality handling and providing more, not less service, with AFA agreements.

“Our firm has identified and successfully implemented AFA’s in a host of different types of cases for many years now,” said Steve Henning, one of the founders of WSHB.  “Being an industry leader has allowed us to develop years of metrics and hard data on the perils, pitfalls, benefits and successes associated with AFA programs. There is no person in the nation better positioned to impart his vast knowledge and expertise of this area than Dan Berman.”

WSHB is a full service law firm with over 185 attorneys with offices throughout the United States.  Dan represents Fortune 500 companies and mid-market businesses, and is a recognized authority on commercial and business law.  He has received Martindale Hubbell’s highest rating of “AV Preeminent”, and has been selected a California “Super Lawyer” on numerous occasions.
