On June 21, 2018 EPS held another of it’s Morning Speaker Series events, this time a lively session centering on the topic of problem cases and difficult attorneys. Applicant counsel Phillip Cohen joined EPS for this event. Mr. Cohen, a noted and longtime San Diego practitioner, advised the assembled why injured workers seek him out, common issues he sees caused by claims administrators, why and when he seeks penalties and sanctions, as well as why some of his matters pend for such a long time. Alex Oberjuerge of EPS provided the defense view, with strategies for combatting these difficult cases and counsel. Barry Ponticello also provided some history and litigation tactics regarding these matters. As with all the Morning Speaker Series events, industry leaders were once again brought together for cutting edge discussion and food for thought.
