Helen Tompkins, Attorney at Law and Jay Beattie, Lindsay Hart LLP will explain what trial attorneys need to do to properly preserve their cases for appeal. Jay represents appellants in civil appeals in business, tort and insurance-based matters. Helen represents appellants in all types of civil appeals from subordinated debentures to products liability to civil procedure, medical malpractice and family law. They have 50 years of shared experience - split evenly between them. Both work closely with trial attorneys during litigation. Given the recent changes in de novo review and the hyper technical issues that are raised on appeal, it is crucial for litigation attorneys to know the ins and outs of preservation.
