How Medicare Can Haunt Trial Lawyers . . . Even Decades into the Future - Live Webinar

March 4, 2020 ♦ Noon EST ♦ 9 AM Pacific

Jack Meligan, Jeremy Babener, and Trisha Thompson
$125.00

As many plaintiffs' lawyers know, Medicare has increased its enforcement against personal injury plaintiffs and their lawyers. Its for-profit partners have taken portions of settlements, denied eligibility to former plaintiffs, and sued trial lawyers for joint liability and double damages.

Join Jack Meligan, a financial advisor and holistic settlement planner with over 30 years’ experience advising plaintiffs, as he walks you through Medicare’s evolving tactics and discusses practical steps you can take to protect yourself and your clients.

To discuss the implications for lawyers’ ethical obligations and malpractice exposure, Jack is joined by tax attorney Jeremy Babener, a nationwide specialist in tax and settlement issues at Lane Powell, and litigation attorney Trisha Thompson, a legal ethics specialist at Holland & Knight. The presenters will also review what documentation can be used to satisfy nonlitigation duties owed to clients and to reduce malpractice risk.
