Robert B. Hille, a partner in the firm’s Healthcare and Litigation Departments, will serve as a roundtable panelist for the webinar “Wrestling with Stress and Ethical Challenges – Resilience Training in the Long-Haul for the Practice of Law,” to be presented by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) on Friday, July 23, 2021 from 10:00am – 1:00pm.
This unique and interactive program is for anyone struggling with mile-long “to do” lists, demanding schedules and stress from over commitment, and is based on themes explored in the 2011 film “Win Win.” The movie follows the story of an attorney trying to juggle the demands of a struggling law practice, his young family, and the high school wrestling team that he coaches. The roundtable discussion will explore how the lead character’s efforts to navigate the many challenges he faces on all three fronts ultimately lead him to an ethical compromise that could have devastating consequences for his practice, his client, and the people he loves most.
The roundtable discussion will focus on the following topics:
- The interrelationship between stress and ethical decision-making
- Recognizing and understanding the warning signs of stress overload
- Understanding the link between the ethical and professional demands of a law practice and an attorney’s personal commitments and pressures
- Recognizing the importance of identifying and utilizing available resources to avoid isolation
- Identifying and implementing practical ways to manage professional pressures and stress, as encountered every day and during “crunch time”
Mr. Hille focuses his practice in the areas of insurance and healthcare law. He has extensive trial experience and has litigated a number of insurance defense and coverage, healthcare, professional liability defense, fraud and abuse, and regulatory matters. His experience also encompasses the representation of clients in response to state and federal white collar investigations, including those involving allegations and charges of healthcare fraud and abuse and the procurement of fraudulent payments from government entities.
