PLENARY: 2019 Legal Year-in-Review

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

The Key Cases and Impact of New Laws

What’s it all about? This is likely to be the most important year for Maine workers’ compensation in quite some time. Jon Oxman (Linnell, Choate & Webber), Alison Denham (Douglas Denham), Elizabeth Brogan (Workers’ Compensation Coordinating Council), and friends take you on a journey of what has happened to the law of workers’ compensation since we last met at the Samoset. They will cast a strategic eye on the impact of the 2019 legislative initiatives and what it means for practice, the parties, and the system. Then, they will turn their attention to a handful of impactful cases and what they portend for how you manage and litigate claims.
