Each May, over 1,000 of the world’s leading attorneys, insurance professionals and experts in the world of construction defect litigation descend upon the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California to discuss the latest trends, laws and precedent-setting cases affecting litigation. This year, once again, I was able to capture some observations furiously typed over the course of a panel discussion with a veritable “Who’s Who” of the defect litigation industry. I edited that stream of consciousness into an article for the Xpera blog on the topic of Effective Use of Expert Witnesses.
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of West Coast Casualty’s annual Construction Defect Seminar. Prior to its acquisition by Xpera, Roel Consulting Group was a founding sponsor of this leading educational event and Xpera has proudly continued to support WCC ever since.
This year, one standout panel featured some of the industry’s top professionals discussing the “Effective Use of Experts” in the context of today’s construction defect disputes. The panel included Adrienne Cohen, Esq., Hon. Rex Heeseman (Ret.), Ken Kasdan, Esq., Joyia Greenfield, Esq., Denise Anderson, Esq., and Tim Fitzpatrick.
