Each state author is an attorney with significant experience in the defense of UM/UIM claims. The survey of the law of each state is arranged in a lucid question and answer format. Among the topics surveyed in the compendium: Is UM/UIM coverage mandatory or discretionary? Must UM/UIM coverage match liability limits? Under what circumstances is UM/UIM coverage available? What conditions precedent must the insured satisfy? What coverage defenses can the insurer assert? Is arbitration of UM/UIM claims allowed, or specifically prohibited? Can offsets against the UM, UIM, UMPD, UEO or other uninsured coverage limits be taken? Are there particular UM/UM issues unique and/or specific to your state?

FLSA Collective Action Federal Case Law Compendium

This newly updated FLSA Collective Action Federal Case Law Compendium includes an organized summary of each reported federal case from 2009–2014 involving federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) "collective action" cases. The compendium was written and edited by experienced litigator Craig Salner, a partner of Clarke Silverglate P.A. in Miami, Florida, and an active leader within the DRI Employment and Labor Law Committee. The summaries are broken down by federal circuit, issue, and whether the outcome was favorable to employers, employees, or mixed. It is intended for FLSA practitioners to have a searchable tool whereby recent cases in their jurisdiction on a given issue are assembled in one easy to locate place. Also, for unique yet recurring types of wage and hour claims, practitioners can use the compendium to research across jurisdictions about how federal courts are treating these claims.

Law Firm Practice Management - Print

The financial reversals of the late 2000s, technological advances, and outsourcing: these factors dramatically changed the way we practice law and continue to present lawyers and law firms with challenges that must be overcome to survive and thrive. The challenges are not merely financial, but also go to the heart of what it means to be a lawyer and to how law firms are organized and function. How does a small or medium sized firm start or persist amid these tectonic shifts in our profession? That is the animating question DRI's Law Firm Practice Management seeks to answer. This book analyzes how smaller firms can compete in the "new normal" with effective and conscious use of strategies. It offers nuts and bolts guidance about forming and managing a small firm and addresses specific aspects that affect small firms, including the possible advantages of being women- or minority-owned, and the role of a general counsel in firm risk management. The chapter on how to manage (and understand) law firm finances is critical reading, as are those on marketing, alternative billing arrangements, and the metrics by which lawyer and law firm performance is being measured by clients.

Picture of the productAccidental Death and Dismemberment: An Analysis and Review
Courts have struggled to determine whether deaths or serious injuries resulting from certain conduct actually constitute accidents, or whether they should be considered so inherently dangerous that the reasonably prudent person would understand the possible consequences of such conduct. DRI's Accidental Death and Dismemberment: Analysis and Review (2007 - 2013) provides a synopsis of cases nationwide from over the past seven years-and the reasoning behind their decisions-that deal with issues such as drunk driving, drug overdose (abuse), and violent altercations. The compendium also addresses when losses involving pre-existing sicknesses or other medical conditions as contributing factors are still "accidents, as well as how insurers can protect themselves from adverse judicial decisions through the use of exclusions. This material can serve as an introduction as you conduct your initial research into this fascinating area of the law.

Picture of the productTrade Secrets and Non-Competes: A Compendium of State Law
DRI is pleased to announce an update to its compendium of state law in the dynamic areas of trade secrets and non-competition covenants. A project of the DRI Commercial Litigation Committee, this publication describes each state's law and procedure in these increasingly important subject areas. The chapter authors are lawyers who regularly practice in the two closely related areas. They advise employers in their states as they draft non-competes and seek protection for the secrets the employers have developed over the years. This publication is written for lawyers who work closely with employers to protect their clients' interests. This second edition addresses changes to the laws surrounding trade secrets and restrictive covenants that have occurred since the first edition was published in 2008. Since that time, a number of states have seen significant changes to their laws. Georgia, for example, enacted a constitutional amendment and statute addressing restrictive covenants; New Jersey adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act; and a number of states saw the issuance of significant case decisions that impacted their laws. This book is intended to provide an introductory discussion and reference tool for practitioners. It should be the place where lawyers go to begin their research.
