Miami partner Miranda Lundeen Soto will participate in a panel discussion at the American Bar Association’s Spring 2019 National Legal Malpractice Conference. The conference offers attendees the profession’s best programming on legal malpractice issues, developments and trending topics, and unparalleled networking opportunities with legal practitioners from across the United States.
Miranda’s panel, titled “The Epidemic of Claims by Non-Clients Against Company Counsel, and What You Can Do About It,” will focus on how this trend impacts lawyers who represent corporate clients, who are increasing the subject of claims brought by their clients’ shareholders, officers, directors, employees and even corporate outsiders like lenders or transaction counterparties. It also will review what lawyers can do to mitigate the risks of these claims.
The conference, sponsored by the ABA’s Standing Committee on Lawyers’ Professional Liability, will take place April 3-5 at the Nobu Eden Roc Hotel on Miami Beach.
