WCLA Updates And Regional Volunteers Wanted

Elaine K. Fresch, the Managing Partner of the firm's Construction Defect Department, is an Executive Director of the newly-formed non-profit public benefit corporation, Women's Construction Litigation Alliance (WCLA) along with Phyllis Modlin of Markel Corporation and Wendy Wilcox of Skane Wilcox. WCLA was formed to support and encourage women in construction litigation.

Elaine is very excited about this new organization, which she believes will be beneficial to women currently handling construction claims and to women entering the profession as well. The initial feedback and attendance at preliminary events has been overwhelming.

WCLA is hosting a reception during West Coast Casualty's 21st Annual Construction Defect Seminar on May 14, 2014 at Trader Sam's at the Disneyland Hotel. WCLA's newsletter, which outlines its initial activities and the volunteers that are needed, has just been posted.
