Spring 2014 Newsletter

Posted by Bradford S. Purcell | Jun 09, 2014 | 0Comments

Check out our Spring 2014 newsletter for updates on hot legal topics ranging from guns and marijuana to Obamacare. Here are a few highlights:

  • Welcome: We are pleased to welcome Mark Abellera as our newest team member. Mark has a strong background in defense litigation and serves as the co-chair of the Insurance Coverage Committee for our local bar association's young lawyers' section.
  • Recent successes:  Tom Underwood obtained a complete dismissal for a client in a legal malpractice case by successfully asserting a statute of limitations defense. Tom, along with R.J. VanSwol, also defeated an opponent's attempts to take a state-law contractual dispute to a federal forum. Kingshuk Roy favorably resolved a claim for a client involved in a catastrophic construction accident where the injured plaintiffs received nearly $10 million in compensation from the other defendants.
  • Featured speakers: Our members are regularly presenting to insurers, trade organizations, police departments and anyone else looking to stay on top of the ever-changing world of litigation. Recently Brad Purcell was invited to be a featured speaker at the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies' annual convention. Don't hesitate to contact us if you're looking for a brush-up on any litigation topics in Illinois.
