Discovery Issues in Litigation Finance (03/24/2021)

Program Number: 3171 Presenter: Andrew Goldenberg, Esq.

Litigation finance is where a nonparty funds a plaintiff’s lawsuit in exchange for an interest in the recovery. Some recent estimates place the size of the litigation finance market at over $100 billion. This burgeoning industry has allowed for greater flexibility in how individuals, businesses and law firms approach litigation. Litigation funding opens up opportunities for litigants which would otherwise not exist due to the risk, complexity and expense associated with litigation. In this program, Andrew Goldenberg of Goldenberg Law, LLC (www.glawnyc.com ), will address the basics of litigation finance and how the increased use of litigation funding has resulted in more demand for disclosure of documents and communications concerning litigation funding arrangements, as well as recent court decisions that have impacted litigation finance discovery.

Does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect employees at risk of contracting COVID-19? When should/must employers provide teleworking options?

Internal Investigations – Top Tips, Strategies and Considerations (03/23/2021)

Program Number: 3167 Presenter: Wifredo A. 'Willy' Ferrer, Esq., Michael Hantman, Esq.

As we enter a new presidential administration where the expectation is that law enforcement and regulatory scrutiny will increase, American businesses need to be prepared. Internal investigations are key parts of corporate life today. But if not conducted the right way following processes that are sound, tested and beyond reproach, an internal investigation might never get off the ground and might result in greater problems for the company. Whether triggered by a grand jury subpoena, a whistleblower or an enforcement action, internal investigations must be taken very seriously and should be run by personnel who are free from conflicts with every step and strategy mapped out clearly and in advance. And in the time of COVID-19, we will address new options to consider if travel is unsafe. Our presentation will highlight best practices – and pitfalls to avoid – when conducting an internal investigation.

Handling Death Cases in New York (05/14/2021)

Program Number: 3166 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

To recover damages for a person’s death in New York State, there are two distinct causes of action: survivorship and wrongful death. While the survivorship cause of action belongs to the estate for the decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death, the wrongful death cause of action compensates those statutory distributees who have suffered pecuniary loss as a result of the decedent's death. Consequently, there may be more than one plaintiff in a death case as well as separate statutes of limitations for each cause of action. Due to these distinctions, an attorney must assess each action independently of the other. Join us to learn the distinction between survivorship and wrongful death.

The Dram Shop Act: An Update (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3165 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

Dram Shop liability arises out of a vendor’s duty to the public not to sell liquor to visibly intoxicated people, so while legislation seeks to shift some responsibility to alcohol providers, violations are often difficult to prove. New York’s Dram Shop Act affords individuals who are injured as a result of another’s intoxication a cause of action against the party that unlawfully sold, provided, or assisted in providing, the alcohol to the intoxicant. The legislation targets vendors, usually a bar or restaurant, that sell alcohol to visibly intoxicated adults, and social hosts who knowingly allow minors to drink.
