LU B I N & M E Y E R Results Tell the Story. When it comes to plaintiff’s medical malpractice firms in Massachusetts, Lubin & Meyer’s record of results speaks volumes. In 2016 alone, the powerhouse law firm obtained all of the million-dollarplus medical malpractice verdicts in the state, according to Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. And those verdicts were compelling: nearly $30 million in a birth injury lawsuit, another $13 million in a claim involving brain injuries in a newborn, and close to $3 million for the victim of a urologist’s delay-of-diagnosis of prostate cancer. Additionally, the firm consistently outpaces all others in terms of settlements. Last year, Lubin & Meyer obtained 35 million-

dollar-plus settlements—more than four times as many as its closest competitor. Five of the firm’s attorneys— founder Andrew C Meyer Jr and partners Robert M. Higgins, Krysia J. Syska, William J. Thompson, and Adam R. Satin—have been named to the Best Lawyers® list for 2017. And it’s a repeat honor for all of them. In fact, Meyer (a 2011 Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice in Boston) has been named to the list for more than two decades.

A Powerful Voice for Change.

Experience and battle-tested courtroom strategies are only part of what makes Lubin & Meyer unique. Meyer and his colleagues

understand that their clients rarely pursue a case soley for monetary gain. While Lubin & Meyer’s recoveries for its clients are substantial—and have been since its inception in 1974—the attorneys are fully aware that there is more at stake. “We’re in this fight to make medicine safer for everyone,” Meyer says simply. “It’s always been about the greater good. We appreciate our clients’ courage and bravery in seeking accountability and the desire to protect others from suffering similar harm. We’re proud to be the voice for injured and mistreated patients and their families and to fight on their behalf for the necessary lifesaving changes that ultimately benefit us all.”

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions— metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

inding oneself in the midst of a medical malpractice, personal injury, civil rights, or commercial litigation case can be overwhelming and disconcerting, to say the least. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder welcomes its clients with arms wide open, offering them the closure they so desperately need in order to put a traumatic situation behind them. “We began as a family firm,” managing attorney Jim Horwitz says. “We work together that way, and we treat the people who come here, who seek our help, as family. That’s a very big part of who we are.” With this in mind, the Koskoff attorneys function collaboratively, especially when taking on cases that other firms may be hesitant about. These challenging cases are the ones on which Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder thrives—where the outcome is important for both the people involved and Connecticut overall. In addition to the work the firm does for its clients, they also make a point to educate and assist lawyers who are outside of the firm. In fact, before he was with the firm and about a year a half into practicing, Horwitz reached out to Michael Koskoff for help in court. Koskoff talked Horwitz through the problem for close to an hour, making sure that he walked away from the call feeling comfortable and fully informed. “That kind of commitment to educating attorneys and bettering the profession is something that the firm was committed to at its inception 80 years ago, and is still committed to today.” The firm’s commitment to the legal community is evident in the number of attorneys who serve as leaders in prominent organizations. Koskoff partner Kathleen Nastri is the incoming president of the American Association for Justice, the world’s largest trial bar, and Horwitz is the incoming president of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association. Many of the attorneys at Koskoff have been listed by Connecticut Magazine as Super Lawyers and have also been listed with The Best Lawyers in America©. The firm has proved itself as one of the leading trial firms in Connecticut and nationally, particularly for its work in medical malpractice cases. Clients are often referred to the firm by other lawyers who trust that Koskoff will work diligently toward the best outcome for each individual case. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder continually goes above and beyond for their clients and the Connecticut legal field overall, demonstrating time after time where their priorities lie.

IN THE HEADLINES

Green Miles Lipton: Harry L. Miles (personal injury litigation – plaintiffs, 1995) is representing Ayanna Hickman in a lawsuit against UMass director of basketball operations Lou Roe, accusing him and three other basketball team staff of depriving her of her civil rights by unlawfully detaining and intimidating her in a team office in 2013. Hickman and Roe had formerly shared an “intimate but tempestuous relationship,” reports The Recorder.

Lichten & Liss-Riordan: Shannon Liss-Riordan (employment law – individuals, 2008) represented Lyft drivers in a lawsuit against the company, arguing that the drivers deserve to be classified as employees and SHANNON LISS-RIORDAN reap employee benefits, such as reimbursement for gasoline and vehicle maintenance expenses, a cost that drivers have been paying for themselves. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria approved the $27 million settlement. Per the settlement agreement, drivers will remain as independent contractors but with additional benefits.

McKee Law: Walter McKee (bet-thecompany litigation; criminal defense: general practice; criminal defense: white-collar, 2012) is representing 70-year-old William Sheldon, who has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly trafficking poached elvers (juvenile American eels) between 2011 and 2014. Sheldon is charged with conspiracy and violating the Lacey Act, which prohibits interstate transport or transactions of fish and wildlife illegally harvested or handled. While Sheldon was licensed in Maine and South Carolina to harvest elvers commercially, he was not licensed to buy or sell in Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, and North Carolina, which are all states where he allegedly sold. The seven counts Sheldon is charged with each carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sheldon is pleading not guilty to the charges.

ON THE MOVE

PRIVATE PRACTICE:

Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete: Andrew L. Eisenberg (employment law – management; litigation – labor and employment, 2008) was elevated to an equity partner in the firm’s Boston office.

Duane Morris: Paul D. Moore (bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights / insolvency and reorganization law; litigation – bankruptcy, 1995), who practices in Boston, was inducted as a fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy in Washington, D.C.

Locke Lord: James F. Coffey (mergers and acquisitions law, 2012) joined Locke Lord in Boston as a partner in its corporate practice group after serving as a partner at White and Williams. Richard A. Manley Jr. (public finance law, 2006) was elected to Locke Lord’s executive committee alongside George Ticknor (banking and finance law; corporate law; leveraged buyouts and private equity law, 2006) and Christopher D. Graham (banking and financing law; corporate law, 1995).

OAKHURST DAIRY LEARNS THE COST OF A MISSING COMMA ITN FEATURE

T

o Oxford comma or not Oxford comma isn’t the question Hamlet asked as he contemplated life or death, but maybe he should have. The lack of an Oxford comma in a Maine law has come at an exorbitant price for Oakhurst Dairy: approximately $10 million. David G. Webbert (employment law – individuals, 2003), Jeffrey Neil Young (employment law – individuals, 2014), Roberta L. de Araujo, and Carol J. Garvan of Johnson, Webbert & Young represented truck drivers in a class-action lawsuit against Oakhurst Dairy concerning more than four years’ worth of overtime pay. While Maine law requires workers to be paid time-anda-half for every additional hour over 40 per week, there are some exemptions, as detailed in the following state law: “The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of: 1. Agricultural produce; 2. Meat and fish products; and 3. Perishable foods.”

Due to the lack of Oxford comma after “shipment,” the First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals deter m i ned t hat t here was enough uncertainty for them to rule in favor of the truck drivers, reversing a lower court decision. T h e d r i ve r s h a d e a r n e d b e t we e n $46,000 and $52,000 per year, working an average 12 extra hours a week without earning overtime. While three drivers filed the class-action lawsuit, the total su m a f ter lega l fees w i l l be d iv ided amongst 75 truck drivers. Danielle Y. Vanderzanden (litigation – labor and employ ment, 2008), Patrick F. Hul la (e m p l o y m e n t l a w – m a n a g e m e n t ; l it i gat ion – l a b or a nd e mploy me nt , 2016), Jennifer K. Oldvader, and David L . Schenberg of Og let ree, Dea k i ns, Nash, Smoa k & Stewa rt represented Oakhurst Dairy.

C YNTHIA J. WARREN HEALTH CARE LAW Providence, RI

On the subject of health care law, Cynthia J. Warren’s passion is evident. “I don’t understand how other people do anything else,” she states. “I like my clients. I like [that] they’re trying to help people.” Before embarking on her career as a lawyer, Warren worked in the health care business for 15 years, and when she finally decided to attend Boston University for her J.D., health care law was an organic practice area to pursue. “A lot of people in my family are physicians and other kinds of health care providers,” Warren notes. “So I’ve always felt a particular empathy for them.” Representing medical practices, including hospitals, home health agencies involving assisted living, nursing homes, and more, Warren has vast experience helping health care providers succeed. She assisted in the formation of a physician practice that successfully allowed the physicians to work autonomously and aided the acquisition of a Rhode Island hospital by a national company that went on to contribute enough money for the hospital to thrive. “Health care has become one of our most important sectors in the economy,” Warren said. “It’s always changing, and there’s always something interesting to learn. It’s an area where you can be a generalist or [have] a very specific audience, so it’s just endlessly interesting.” When it comes to the personal characteristics that allow Warren to be successful in her work as a health care law practitioner, she says, “I would like to say incredible intelligence, but I don’t really think it’s that. I really think it’s being there for people. Being available and responsive to your clients is the most important thing you can do as a lawyer of any kind, and I work hard to do both.” Warren is also active in her community. She is president of the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and provides pro bono services to various non-profit organizations. She also gives presentations and composes articles on a variety of health care topics, including Stark Law, joint venture options, fiduciary duties of directors, Tarasoff, physician recruitment and employment, HIPAA, and other patient confidentiality issues. Warren has been with Cameron & Mittleman since 2014 and has been listed with Best Lawyers® for her work in health care law since 2009. W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

Annette Gonthier-Kiely has specialized in serious injury and wrongful death cases including medical malpractice, motor vehicle, products liability, construction liability, premises liability, liquor liability and general negligence since she began practicing law in 1981. Since obtaining a verdict of $1,100,000 in her first solo trial for a teacher who suffered a hip fracture in a fall, and winning the appeal of that verdict, Annette has a consistent record of impressive wins by verdict and settlement. These results include the highest medical malpractice verdict of 2010, which was also the first verdict for “loss of chance of survival” damages under the new law adopted by the Supreme Judicial Court in 2008 in one of her previous wins in a delay of diagnosis of cancer case. Evidence unearthed to support her conviction that the pedestrian handrails, lining the “Big Dig” roadways, were unreasonably dangerous and caused deaths and amputations to motorcyclists and motorists, led to three settlements totaling $15,400,000, including the second highest settlement of 2010, two 2015 settlements, handrail removals and crash testing. Passion, attention to detail, tenacity and trial skill are the earmarks of her firm. Annette is currently serving her second term as president of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys. Recognized by Super Lawyers since 2008, Annette was named a 2016 “Top Women of the Law” by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and 2012 “Lawyer of the Year” by the North Shore Women’s Bar Association.
