Partner, Tim Repass, will represent WSHB on a high-powered panel at the upcoming CLM Annual Conference presenting on the attitudes and positions of the Gen Z and Millennial populations and how the generational divide can affect verdicts. In this important discussion, entitled “Sending a Message: Litigation with Gen Z and Millennial Juries” Repass will be joined by fellow industry leaders Larry Beemer of Tokio Marine HCC and Mark Konerman of Great American Insurance Group. Together they will delve into the evolving views of these younger individuals and explore the impact these jurors can have at trial and how to evolve case presentation and evaluation accordingly. The panel will take place on March 24th, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
“Trials are happening around the nation, and the jurors which are responding to subpoenas to appear are giving us a different jury pool than we had pre-pandemic,” said WSHB Founding Partner Kevin Smith. Smith, a celebrated trial lawyer added “Tim Repass will be sharing key insight into the minds of Gen X and millennial jurors, decision making processes and providing key information for the defense.”
