Three of HeplerBroom’s asbestos litigation partners will play key roles at HarrisMartin’s annual Midwest Asbestos Litigation Conference, which will be held September 21 at the Four Seasons Hotel in St. Louis. Brenda Baum is in her 12th year of co-chairing the event. George Kiser will be discussing how to handle remote depositions, and  Kelly Libbra will examine personal jurisdiction issues. Also featured at the conference will be a panel of area judges speaking on remote proceedings during a pandemic—and beyond. Panelists include Judge Stephen Stobbs from Madison County, Judge Andrew Gleeson from St. Clair County, and Judge Ellen Levy from St. Louis County.

All three HeplerBroom attorneys focus their practices on asbestos litigation, products liability, and toxic tort matters. Baum and Kiser are rated AV Preeminent Attorneys by Martindale-Hubbell and have been named to the lists of Illinois Leading Lawyers. In addition, Baum has been named to the lists of Best Lawyers in America and Illinois Super Lawyers.

Information about the conference, including links to registration and CLE credits, is available here.

HeplerBroom is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
