Hiscock & Barclay Partner Speaks at HarrisMartin’s New York Asbestos
Hiscock & Barclay, LLP, Partner Linda Clark will speak on February 25, 2009 at HarrisMartin’s New York Asbestos Conference at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Clark will appear on a panel of attorneys and will be discussing her role as a court-appointed liaison counsel in the Third, Fourth and Fifth Judicial Districts, where she serves as a representative of defendants.
Clark concentrates her practice in the areas of commercial litigation, toxic tort and defense and health care litigation. Her defense practice is focused upon the representation of specialty insurers and self-insured concerns in cases ranging from the defense of claims of catastrophic injury brought pursuant to New York’s strict liability labor laws, to the defense of thousands of mass-tort asbestos and pharmaceutical claims pending in the southern, eastern and central regions of New York State. She also has extensive experience in commercial litigation matters, many of which involve complex contract claims for millions of dollars. Other areas of litigation in which Clark has significant experience include securities claims, labor law cases, and health care-related contract claims and appeals.
