The Defense Never Rests

Recognize this? “You can’t handle the truth!” Or this? “The two yutes.” Well those are pretty easy! But what about this: “…now imagine she’s White” In this episode, The Defense Never Rests is taken over by Nate Bohlander and Oliver Brooks, who are joined by Ashley Johnson and Tyler Williams. Have you ever wondered how realistic movies about the law really are? Are they, like most things which come out of Hollywood, sensationalized to draw audiences to theaters?

The Defense Never Rests

What drives you each day to keep working toward your professional goals? Better question…do you know what those goals even are? Some of us are determined to put in the work solely to best serve our insureds. Others it could be monetary rewards or promotions.

Even if you do not consciously realize it is there. For our guest this week on The Defense Never Rests, Nicole Pielli, General Counsel of...

The Defense Never Rests

How does the average juror view the trucking industry? You know what we mean, does the average individual have a positive or negative opinion of truckers. As we approach the holiday season with warnings of supply shortages and we are worrying about getting those all important gifts in time, I would venture a guess that the average person is relying on the trucking industry quite a bit. Even if we may not always be consciously aware of it. We needed it 18 months ago when we were not leaving our homes. We need it today and we will certainly need it tomorrow. Simply said, we, as a society, need...

The Defense Never Rests

When you assign your outside counsel, did you ever stop and think about the traits you’re seeking? Maybe it is an aggressive approach to litigation. Maybe it is mental dexterity. Maybe both. Perhaps trial experience is an absolute “must.” Perhaps you just genuinely like working with them. No matter what characteristics your outside counsel exhibits, chances are they are different from other risk managers and claims handlers across the country, let alone the globe. This week on “The Defense Never Rests,” we are joined – again – by Matt Margolis, who, after years of private...

The Defense Never Rests

Do you know how implicit gender bias is impacting your workplace? It is not always easy to spot and the best of us may be guilty of it as well. Each year, nearly half of graduating law students are women.  However, the number of women in partnership or managerial positions is grossly disproportionate to men. This trend is not just seen in the legal field. Women in managerial positions across professional industries, including the insurance industry, are more likely to be male-dominated. Why do we continue to see this happening? We tackle that very question this week on the Defense...
