Anne Oldenburg Linda Hay

Anne Oldenburg and Linda Hay have been invited to speak to a long-standing and well-renowned Chicago area dental study club. The two attorneys will discuss the nature and elements of a claim for dental malpractice, as well as how a case works its way through to resolution. They will share their experiences defending dental practitioners to provide guidelines for avoiding potential claims and examine how these cases can be best defended. They will also discuss some of the more specific risk issues that often arise for dental practitioners (e.g., documentation, managing patient expectations, informed consent, disciplinary matters, peer review, social media, and privacy related concerns).

Hay is a partner in the firm’s Chicago office. She actively defends professional liability cases and has tried numerous dental and other types of malpractice cases to successful verdict. She speaks regularly to professionals about risk and claims management.

Oldenburg is also a partner in the firm’s Chicago office. She focuses her practice on the defense of healthcare professionals, as well as representing professionals before licensing boards. Oldenburg has published and lectured extensively on issues relating to healthcare litigation and risk management issues.

To ensure this, the firm has identified essential personnel in each office who will make certain that critical firm functions that cannot be done remotely continue to be handled. We have put in place protocol for those essential personnel to make sure they are keeping healthy per the CDC cleaning and sanitizing recommendations. All teams have back-up personnel and procedures that we will follow to make sure all deadlines are met and clients receive the same great service and work product that we have always been proud to provide.

HeplerBroom’s IT department has been working hard to make sure all remote employees are set up with equipment and access from home to limit disruption to our clients. Maintaining security and confidentiality has remained, and will continue to remain, at the forefront of all processes and procedures, at all levels throughout the firm.

The firm has created emergency communication measures to communicate any changes to this plan to employees and are communicating on a regular basis with any and all new resources and helpful information during this uncertain time.

During these fluid and unpredictable times, HeplerBroom will continue its commitment to great service and results for our clients, all while keeping safe and healthy.
