Elaine K. Fresch Presents Construction Defect Webinar for Claims Litigation Management (CLM)

Elaine K. Fresch, managing partner of Selman Breitman's Construction Defect Department, recently presented a webinar for CLM (Claims Litigation Management) entitled, "The Insurer's and Defense Counsel's Perspective: New Trends in the Investigation and Discovery of a Construction Defect Claim."

The presentation focused on the recently-adopted California Judicial Council form interrogatories for use in construction defect actions. Joining Elaine in the discussion were Katherine Gallo, Discovery Referee/Mediator; Kevin Gillispie of Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman; and Phyllis Modlin, Executive Claims Examiner of Markel Corporation. The panel discussed how these new discovery requests could be instrumental in cases of all types to meet the goals of defense counsel as well as insurers.
