Best & Flanagan Attorneys Speak at Minnesota CLE’s March Seminars

This month, Minnesota CLE hosted two forums featuring Best & Flanagan attorneys as speakers.

At the 2022 Family Law Institute, Karolina Brekken-Hoerl and Martha Engel presented “The Intersection of Family Law and Intellectual Property Law: What to Watch For.” Whether known or not, IP issues are likely at play when representing a business owner, content creator or brand. In this session, family law practitioners learned the basics of IP issues in order to best advise their clients on preserving their products, processes, or ideas.

The Family Law Institute was hosted both in-person and online March 21-22, 2022, and includes a Post-Institute Webcast Series of 5 additional programs designed for Minnesota family law attorneys. As part of this series, Liz Hartwell presented “School Law 101 for Family Lawyers,” with attorney Andrea Lynn Jepsen on March 25. Together, they explored the universe of information family law attorneys and judicial officers ought to know about school law and special education, and offered practical guidance for assisting parents navigating disputes in these areas.

Litigating Probate and Trust Disputes in 2022 was presented online on March 29 with courses designed for civil litigators, estate planners, and experienced probate and trust litigators. Kim Ruckdaschel-Haley participated in the panel “Effective Direct and Redirect Examination – Telling the Witness’s Story by Asking Purposeful Questions” with Brian Dillon (Lathrop GPM), moderated by Denise Rahne (Robins Kaplan). They discussed strategies for conducting exams in probate and trust disputes, among other tools and approaches for often emotional and contentious litigation.
