Robert B. Hille, a partner in the firm’s Healthcare and Litigation Departments, will be a speaker at the “2023 Summer Conference,” to be presented via live webinar on Thursday, August 31, 2023 from 8:30am – 4:30pm by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.
Sessions at this full-day conference will focus on family law, labor & employment law, transactional law, insurance law, litigation, technology, and local government & land use.
Mr. Hille will be the moderator for the discussion “Ethics and Malpractice Update 2023.” Malpractice insurance companies can be uniquely instrumental in helping attorneys mitigate risk. Not only do they provide insurance, but they have a particular vantage point that allows them to gather data about which types of claims are being made and in which part of their practices or procedures attorneys are most vulnerable. This panel, that includes a malpractice insurer and attorneys who have represented clients in ethics cases before the New Jersey Supreme Court, will review the latest information about malpractice as well as the latest ethics opinions including In the Matter of Wade, in which the Court established a committee to study whether disbarment should continue to be permanent in all In re Wilson cases that deal with misappropriation of clients funds.
Mr. Hille focuses his practice in litigation, with a particular emphasis on trial advocacy. His areas of concentration include insurance, healthcare law, professional liability and ethics, and white-collar criminal matters, including those related to professional ethics. Mr. Hille has extensive trial expertise that encompasses insurance defense and coverage cases, healthcare disputes, professional liability defense, fraud and abuse, and regulatory issues. He is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney and lectures frequently on issues related to attorney ethics and professional liability.
