Highly Anticipated Panel Provides Sage Practice Pointers for Management Liability

(Boston, MA). In the past year, high profile cases have emerged throughout the nation discussing management responses to allegations framed within the #metoo world. Strategies, perils and pitfalls which give rise to or minimize liability will be discussed at length during a widely anticipated presentation at the CLM Cyber, Management and Professional Liability Conference on July 11, 2019.

National thought leader, Kelly Waters, Managing Partner of the New Jersey office of WSHB, will moderate a vigorous discussion of hot issues and practice pointers for those handling management liability issues throughout the country.

“Your morning paper, news alerts and widespread media underscore this issue is top of mind,” said Waters, a well regarded litigator who handles professional liability issues throughout the nation. “For those making the allegations and defending against them, there are real consequences which have to be thoughtfully considered and employed in seeking the truth, particularly in this heated litigation climate.”

Sharing the stage with Waters are Kelly Hopper Moore (State of Oregon), attorney Michael Mazurczak, and Lisa Unger (Hallmark Financial Services). Together, this highly distinguished group will dissect seminal sexual harassment cases and the real costs, both fiscal and emotional, expected when securing the veracity of the allegations made.

“There are incredible practice pointers to be gained by looking at cases which have played out in the media and courtrooms across the country,” said Waters. “Actor Geoffrey Rush’s relationship with actress Yael Stone, Katie Brennan, the chief of staff at the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency who was raped by Albert J. Alvarez, the director behind New Jersey Governor Murphy’s election campaign are just a few case studies we will discuss.” In matters of high emotional consequences, the legal and financial quagmire is huge for management, as well as, the impact of being disbelieved or discredited.

This conference is a fully reinvented event that offers its participants unprecedented knowledge access to leaders in the profession. Attendees will have a unique professional opportunity to share their expertise in partnership with other authorities from across the country while building relationships. WSHB is a Diamond Sponsor of this CLM event.

Kelly Waters is a Partner in WSHB’s New York office and the Managing Partner of the firm’s New Jersey office. Ms. Waters’ practice primarily focuses on the defense of businesses and employers in complex litigation matters in the areas of construction employment, product liability, professional liability and commercial related matters.
