Willenken attorneys conducted two CLE presentations on Sept. 13 as part of the firm’s sponsorship of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC).
Paul Loh led a session with local counsel Kevin Murch of Perez & Morris LLC, Megan Frient of The Procter & Gamble Company, and Sara Sudkamp of The Kroger Co. for the ACC Southwest Ohio Chapter at MadTree Brewing Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. The presentation, titled “Primer for Successful Litigation Management: 10 Ways Experienced Trial Counsel Can Help Your Company Obtain an Optimal and Efficient Settlement Without Going to Trial,” explained how the best way to settle a case favorably is not by preparing to settle, but by preparing to go to trial. The event concluded with a social hour and brewery tour, as well as a souvenir pint glass for attendees.
Eileen Ahern, Megan O’Neill, and Justin Goodwin were joined by local counsel Marian Vetro of T-Mobile for their presentation at the ACC Washington Chapter 2nd Annual Business Summit in Redmond, Wash. One of seven presentations during the full-day conference, “The In-House Counsel’s Consumer Class Action Defense Checklist” offered ways for in-house counsel to minimize both exposure and disruption to a client’s business when faced with their next class action. Attendees received a tangible checklist, along with practical tips regarding strategies to consider and common pitfalls to avoid.
