Our company is pleased to continue its sponsorship of WEM because we believe that giving female mass tort attorneys networking opportunities like this strengthens the plaintiffs’ bar.
Williamsville, NY (PRWEB) September 22, 2016
Today, law firm lender Counsel Financial proudly announced its sponsorship of three plaintiffs’ attorney programs occurring this September: the Women En Mass annual retreat for female mass tort attorneys; the American Association for Justice’s Hot Topic in Mass Tort Litigation Seminar; and HarrisMartin’s MDL Conference. The company, which has provided financing to the plaintiffs’ bar since 2000, is honored to support these programs because they foster education and networking among plaintiffs’ counsel.
Counsel Financial is the Pledge Sponsor of Women En Mass, a conference that was founded by Aimee Wagstaff of Andrus Wagstaff in 2012 to empower female mass tort attorneys. The annual retreat that will be held in Aspen, Colorado on September 26 – 27 contains sessions designed to promote an environment where women can learn, grow and build relationships with some of the most preeminent female attorneys in the mass tort field. The event is free as a result of sponsors, like Counsel Financial, who support the Women En Mass mission.
“WEM is unique because it gives female attorneys of different ages, experience levels and backgrounds the tools to succeed and gain leadership roles in mass torts, as well as provides them a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere to connect and develop as a strong, cohesive unit,” stated Kelly Anthony, Deputy General Counsel at Counsel Financial. “Our company is pleased to continue its sponsorship of WEM because we believe that giving female mass tort attorneys networking opportunities like this strengthens the plaintiffs’ bar.”
In addition to Women En Mass, Counsel Financial will attend the American Association for Justice’s Hot Topics in Mass Tort Litigation seminar as the Platinum Sponsor. The event, held in Washington, D.C. on September 28, coincides with the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation hearings and is open to plaintiffs’ lawyers only. The program offers the opportunity for attendees and faculty to openly discuss trial strategy, litigation techniques and how to defeat common defenses raised in mass tort litigation. Concurrently, Counsel Financial is sponsoring HarrisMartin's MDL Conference: Talcum Powder, ELIQUIS, PPI, Essure, Taxotere & Roundup Litigation. Each of these CLE-accredited events is not only educational in nature, but an excellent opportunity for plaintiffs’ counsel to network with other trial attorneys who are committed to the advancement of the plaintiffs’ bar.
