On June 8th, 2020, the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association invites plaintiff personal injury lawyers to improve on their already sharp skills with the webinar: Fighting the Good Fight. MEA is always happy to travel through Alberta to sponsor and attend ACTLA’s educational events, and is a proud sponsor of this virtual seminar.
Attendees will learn how some of ACTLA’s most experienced plaintiff practitioners avoid pitfalls, build their practice and keep files moving. Nore Aldein (Norm) Assiff of Assiff Law Office will give advice on how to make the most of Section B claims, and Mark E. Feehan of Feehan Law Office will give a behind the scenes presentation on Smith vs. Obuck and share takeaways. Participants are invited to take some time away from their busy practices to share how they are fighting the good fight and get the scoop on the latest legislative updates. The organizers also planned for a panel discussion titled “Are you leaving costs on the table?”
Speakers also include Angela V. Saccomani, Q.C. of Biamonte LLP, Hollick Chipman and Michael Pucylo of Miller Thomson LLP, Shelagh McGregor of Weir Bowen LLP, and Robert McVey, Q.C. of KMSC Law LLP. Consult ACTLA’s website for the full program.
The Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association (ACTLA) was founded in the Spring of 1986 as a non-profit society dedicated to the objectives of advancing the science of Jurisprudence, training in all fields and phases of Advocacy, upholding the honour and dignity of the profession of Law, encouraging brotherhood and sisterhood among the members of the bar, upholding and improving the adversary system and trial by jury, and promoting the administration of justice and the public good. Its mission is to advocate for a strong civil justice system that protects the rights of all Albertans.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to putting on additional complimentary seminars on topics specific to running a civil litigation practice in the face of COVID, ACTLA is taking steps to ensure that previously planned seminars can proceed in a way that follows the ban on large gatherings and social distancing recommendations.
