The Personal Injury update – Tuesday, May 15, 2018. 5:15-7pm


Has your practice become busier and more harried as time goes on? For personal injury and insurance defense lawyers, new court decisions and government regulations are coming too fast to completely absorb and then fade from view. Yet due diligence demands you stay on top of all the legal twists and turns. Our upcoming Personal Injury Update, on May 15, 2018, is what you need to ensure you are up to date in your field.

Come and join our panel of distinguished plaintiff and defence counsel for on point discussion and insights into recent developments in the law, including:

Civil Juries – benefits and drawbacks
Challenging jurors – efforts to expand the right to challenge for cause
ONCA and Cobb / El-Khodr appeals – pre judgment interest & statutory deductible in MVA cases
Admissibility of surveillance evidence
Insurance coverage denials & strategies for plaintiff/defence lawyers
• LSO Limitations on marketing, referrals & contingency agreements


Our panelists include Frank Benedetto of Flaherty McCarthy LLP, Brian Cameron of Oatley Vigmond LLP, Deanna Gilbert from Thomson Rogers, Tom Yen of Matthew Abogado LLP, and moderator, Erin VanderVeer from Borden Ladner Gervais LLP.

This program offers 15 minutes of Professionalism Content and 90 minutes of Substantive Content, not to mention the opportunity of catching up with peers and colleagues to discuss this ever changing area of law.

This tailored attitude to CPD is what a TLA Nutshell is all about: anticipating, meeting and exceeding our members’ needs. TLA Nutshells run in the evening, generally last a couple of hours, and offer CPD credits in a collegial, informal atmosphere. Our seminars are designed, written and presented by professionals from the Toronto legal community to reflect your reality. We invite you to check out our line-up for other upcoming seminars and social gatherings. Join us for interesting topics that always lead to great conversations.
