Dax Watson, Managing Partner of Lipson Neilson’s Phoenix office, was selected by the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) to moderate a panel discussion titled, “What’s Your Verdict? Potential Pitfalls in PL Defense.”
The trial of a professional liability loss allows for a number of defenses, but presenting such defenses to a jury poses a number of challenges. This panel explored those challenges through a mock trial of a legal malpractice claim involving estate planning with disgruntled family members. The audience viewed evidence, heard arguments, and was asked to decide the case as if they were on the jury.
Stacked with top speakers from across the country, the 2017 PLUS Conference was a destination event for professional liability insurance professionals. Held during November 1-3, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia, this year marked the 30th Anniversary for this event.
Dax Watson focuses his law practice in commercial litigation with an emphasis in real estate matters and professional liability defense. His clients include professionals in the fields of real estate, law, accounting, architecture, and engineering. He regularly appears and represents clients in regulatory matters before the Arizona Department of Real Estate and other state and federal agencies.
