Ted Schaer showcases important legal news, congratulates fellow attorneys for milestone accomplishments
Given the fact that courts throughout the nation are shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s easy to assume that all activity in the legal sector has come to a halt. However, as renowned lawyer Ted Schaer points out, this is hardly the case. Schaer offers a peek into some notable achievements that are well worth celebrating.
Ted Schaer and his entire law firm have always put a premium on encouraging diversity in the legal industry, rightly noting that it’s important for law firms to “mirror the global communities in which our employees and clients live and work”. To that end, it’s not surprising that Schaer highlights the accomplishments of two notable female colleagues on his LinkedIn page. He notes that Priya Kunthasami was just appointed the first Beazley Breach Response (BBR) Services manager in Canada and points out that notable former prosecutor Kristen Gibbons Feden recently joined a private practice to focus her energies on representing victims of crimes, accidents and other forms of injustice.
Schaer also highlights the highly informative COVID-19-related resource page constructed by the law firm Gallo Vitucci Klar, LLP. The page is ideal for anyone interested in how the pandemic has affected legal proceedings throughout the United States. It contains news on NY and NJ court systems, federal and state legislative updates, and litigation trends, among other topics. Given the fact that Ted Schaer is a leading expert in insurance-related cases, it’s likely he’ll eventually weigh in on insurance cases referred to on the page. Small businesses in various parts of the country are taking insurers to court for refusing to provide coverage and/or compensation due to the pandemic and the outcomes of these cases are certain to affect the business and insurance communities alike for the foreseeable future.
Ted Schaer also highlights legal firms and insurance agencies that have made the effort to go fully remote to protect their employees and clients from the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the firms that he showcases on his LinkedIn page include Gavel.net, Magna Legal Vision, and the NSM Insurance Group. As Schaer points out, some of these businesses started preparing to go virtual months or even years before the pandemic hit, and their efforts have certainly paid off in helping to protect their communities from the spread of COVID-19 while providing employees with an avenue to earn a steady income even as businesses throughout the nation shut down.
As Ted Schaer makes clear, a lot is going on in the legal community right now. Lawyers are sharing information to help community members and fellow lawyers during and after the pandemic and many in the legal and insurance industries are doing everything in their power to keep their communities safe. As the U.S. emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath, the legal industry is certain to get back on the job providing individuals and businesses alike with the quality representation and services they need and deserve.
