CLE Webinar: High Stakes – Effectively Mediating Labor Law 240 Cases in New York

CLE Events | Webinar Date: January 30, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. ET

Please join NAM neutrals James W. Borkowski, Esq. and Mitchell R. Kahn, Esq. on Tuesday, January 30, for a CLE presentation with the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers.  

New York State Labor Law Section 240 holds owners and general contractors strictly liable for injuries and sequelae from height-related accidents, including falls from ladders and scaffolds. Labor Law 240 cases are high stakes for both sides, making mediation all the more important. This CLE will provide tips and insights from two experienced litigators and NAM Mediators on how to prepare for the successful mediation of your case.
