Please join Magistrate Judge Janis van Meerveld, U.S. District Court – EDLA, Jeffrey Mandel, Juge Napolitano, and Caroline Lafourcade, Gordon Arata, for a discussion on issues that attorneys should be prepared to address when negotiating a settlement. While many attorneys are aware of scope of release, confidentiality, and other similar issues, they often do not consider the more complicated issues that can arise, including: hold-backs for Medicare liens or other potential claims; the tax effects/1099 and/or W-2 withholdings; required court approval necessary for certain types of cases (e.g., minors, class/collective actions, comp claims, etc.).
Become aware of these issues and be prepared for them at the time of settlement. One Hour of CLE with a light lunch. Download the Complicated Issues Relating to Settlements Registration Form. For information, contact CC Kahr at (504) 589-7990. Register online.
