Shari Lewis to present at DRI’s Professional Liability SeminarDecember 6, 2012 | | |
Shari Claire Lewis, a partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property, Product Liability & Toxic Tort and Professional Liability Practice Groups, will be a moderator at the DRI Professional Liability Seminar on Dec. 6-7, 2012, to be held at the Sheraton New York Hotel, New York City.
The Panel Ms. Lewis will be moderating is entitled, “What Is a “Profession”? Who is a ‘Professional”? What Are “Professional Services”? It is described as follows:
“Given the many challenges facing the professional liability defense team, we sometimes neglect to ask these preliminary questions. Yet the answers may not always be clear. They can differ dramatically, depending on where and how the services are rendered, the scope of the contract of employment/retention and the nature of the relationship between the professional and the plaintiff. The panel will discuss how to determine whether the “miscellaneous professional” is legally a professional and the impact that determination can have on substantive legal issues, such as statute of limitations, privity, duty and privilege.
