Seth L. Laver, a member of the firm’s Management and Professional Liability and Employment and Labor groups, wrote an article for the Defense Research Institute’s newsletter discussing his past two years as chair of DRI’s Professional Liability Committee.
In “Not My Swan Song,” Seth talks about how he got involved with the DRI early on in his law career, the leadership path that led him to chair of the committee, and his plans for future participation within the organization.
“I have served as webcast and communities chair, program vice chair and chair, and committee vice chair, and chair,” Seth said. “My big break came when I volunteered to handle a role a bit outside of my comfort zone but one that served as a springboard to leadership roles. Through those roles, through my presence in the committee, I have developed friendships that I am confident will survive my professional career and beyond. I have developed clients with mutual trust and respect that form the foundation of my practice. I have learned to design and develop meetings, proposals, board reports, and seminars—all skills that I had not considered and do not recall learning in law school.”
