Dallas, Texas, April 27, 2018 – Four Wick Phillips partners spoke today at the Association of Corporate Counsel’s Annual In-House Symposium at the Westin Galleria.
Erika Bright and Noah Nadler led the “How to be a Hero by Understanding Insurance” panel, which discussed the top insurance related issues that in-house counsel should consider that will help maximize coverage for their companies. The panel also discussed common mistakes that companies often make when purchasing insurance policies and handling insurance claims, and how to avoid such pitfalls.
Marcia Jackson and Molly Jones led the “Settlement Agreements and Potential Challenges to Fully Resolving Employment Disputes” panel, which discussed all aspects of a settlement deal and where impediments may lie (e.g., monetary consideration, scope of release, confidentiality and non-disparagement, post-employment non-compete agreements, taxes and additional terms) to ensure employment disputes are fully resolved. The panel also addressed the recent case law and agency pronouncements that address settlement agreements, which includes separation agreements in the employment context.
