Robert Zelms, Managing Partner of the Scottsdale Office of Manning & Kass, Ellrod, Ramirez, Trester LLP talks about insufficient descriptions in billing as evidence of malpractice and the types of claims carriers are filing against their defense firms in an interview at the 2013 PLUS International Conference.
In this unique webinar, airing live on September 24, 2013, a panel of industry experts explores how Lawyers and other professionals have increasingly embraced 21st Century technologies without considering the potential impact it might have on their professional and ethical duties to clients. Using a fun overlay of a fictitious managing partner who must solve the mystery of how an adversary knows confidential, strategic information about a big case, our presenters provide substantive discussion of a variety of potential scenarios that could lead to the loss of confidential information, the tensions between attorney-client obligations and law firm employee rights and insurance implications should claims arise as a result of a misdirected email or a purloined iPad. These and other potential technology exposures for the unwary professional are explored as our hapless managing partner’s investigations teach him about the real life technology habits of his attorneys and staff.
Watch the entire webinar below – it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
