Phillip E. Seltzer Co-Presenter for Michigan ICLE Webinar on “The New Legal Malpractice Statute of Repose.”

On July 30, 2013, Phillip E. Seltzer was a co-presenter for a Michigan ICLE Webinar on “The New Legal Malpractice Statute of Repose.” The webinar explored the impact of the new statute on lawyers, the distinctions between a repose statute and a statute of limitation, the effect the new law will have on the pre-existing statute of limitations applicable to legal malpractice, the interaction between the new six year repose statute and other existing tolling provisions, and the best practices that lawyers should adopt to take advantage of and to ensure the earliest triggering of the available time bars on potential legal malpractice claims.
