SHJ Partners Host Virtual CLE Presentations
Recently, our lawyers took to Zoom to share actionable guidance on pressing industry issues. All webinars are still available to view for CLE credit:
“How COVID-19 Has Affected ADR Practice”
Partner Adam Dinnell moderated a virtual Houston Bar Association (HBA) seminar featuring a panel of three accomplished mediators, including partner Dan Hinde. The participants discussed practical considerations for lawyers and clients (notably, how remote mediations have shifted the lawyer-client dynamic) as well as best practices in the era of Zoom. HBA members can watch the recording free of charge. Access now.
“The Impact of the Supreme Court’s McGirt Decision on Oklahoma Oil and Gas Business”
2020 summer associate Dave Finkel joined partners Andy Hicks and Adam Dinnell to host a LawPracticeCLE webinar on the landmark McGirt v. Oklahoma ruling. In addition to analyzing the new regime of overlapping federal, state, and tribal regulations triggered by the decision, the session also provided forward-looking analysis on how McGirt could impact other locales and industries in the future. Dave, who co-authored a widely read article on the topic with Andy and Adam, was invited back to contribute some of his recent noteworthy findings. Access now.
“Genetic ‘Fingerprinting’ May Be Key in Virus Exposure Suits”
Partner Adam Dinnell shared insights into genetic sequence-based typing, a form of “genetic fingerprinting” that stands to offer key evidence in proving or disproving causation in COVID-19 litigation, in a LawPracticeCLE webinar. Adam—who has worked on some of the highest-profile tort cases in history, including Flint, Katrina, and the 2001 anthrax attacks—is well-versed in this complex scientific technique, which has already been used with success in other infectious disease cases.
