Rehm Bennett Moore Rehm and Ockander lawyers have helped organize and speak at several recent and upcoming seminars about workers’ compensation.
Rod Rehm is co-chairing the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys “ERISA Subrogation, Health Care, Long Term Disability and Other ERISA Benefits Workshop ” on Friday May 3rd in Lincoln. Knowledge of this area of the law helps attorneys to maximize financial recovery for workers’ compensation and personal injury clients.
The seminar features ERISA experts Eric Buchanan and David Abney. Rod met Mr. Buchanan and Mr, Abney at a seminar through WILG, the Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group (WILG) and recruited them to present to NATA.
Speaking of WILG, Rod presented at the WILG Midwestern Conference on April 29th in Kansas City. His seminar topic is “Lessons from 40 years in the trenches”. Rod also helped organize the conference. Besides the formal seminar, the WILG regional conference was a great opportunity for lawyers who represent injured workers to learn from each other informally. Jon Rehm also attended the seminar.
Brody Ockander recently presented at the recent Baylor Evnen client conference. Brody was part of a panel of plaintiff’s attorneys who presented to insurance and human resources personnel about the plaintiff’s perspective on workers’ compensation. The fact that Brody was invited to the panel shows the regard in which he is held by opposing counsel.
In case you missed it last month, Todd Bennett was inducted into the College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers. Todd joins Rod as the only plaintiff’s lawyer members of the College from Nebraska,
