From all corners, the reactions about the conference I have received or heard about was how much it was a success.
I personally was able to solidify and broaden a number of relationships particularly "across the aisle," something that I had heard was so much a part and a goal of these conferences Perrin puts together. My firm is known for its thought leaders and it was great to meet with other thought leaders and colleagues with whom we have worked to resolve disputes in innovative and principled ways.

Your programs have quickly become the best in the industry. This is a tribute to the hard work that you and your staff put in, as well as keeping your eye on what is significant in the litigation world today.

Just a short note to tell you that I found the NYCAL conference to be "among the best"! It was a virtual "Who’s Who" of NYCAL-from judges to plaintiffs’ attorneys to defense counsel-and the topics were real live issues we confront.

The San Francisco conference is a remarkable gathering of defense lawyers, plaintiffs' lawyers, judges, along with company and insurance carrier representatives. It is a "must attend" for all asbestos litigation practitioners.

It just doesn't get any better than this, Lynnsey- I thought the Beverly Hills seminar was terrific! Kudos to you and your staff.

Thank you, Lynnsey for your great organising skill, energy and vision for putting the conference together. I enjoyed it a lot and took away some valuable insights.
In my opinion, this was one of the most comprehensive conferences I have attended and the fact that there was very limited contentiousness between the Plaintiff and Defendant speakers is a testament to your efforts in retaining speakers with professionalism. I particularly found Judge Robreno's presentation enlightening and relevant given all the movement in Federal Court.

This was definitely one of the best asbestos conferences I have attended in a long time. Fresh ideas, provocative and knowledgeable speakers, and a very engaged audience made this experience both educational and enjoyable. The variety of the topics presented, and the number of differing perspectives offered, contributed to making this a very informative few days.

I found the conference to be one of the best Id ever attended, and that same comment was made by the other the other judges present! All of the presentations that I heard were excellent! All were well prepared and very well presented. The panel of Doctors was really outstanding and I especially enjoyed hearing Dr. Hammer.
Of course, it might seem a bit self-serving for me to praise all of the presentations since John Kurowski and Randy Gori paid me so many nice complements but I really did find everything to be informative! Every section seemed to move very well and all were interesting. I am proud to have

Your seminar was one of the best asbestos seminars I've attended in the last 5 years. I look forward to seeing your next endeavor.
The in-house counsel panel at the Asbestos Litigation Conference gave attendees from both sides of the trial bar insights into how corporate parties to litigation decide which lawyers they will work with, to litigate or otherwise resolve disputed matters. The conversations I had with both sides of the house, plaintiff and defense, reveal that there are multiple opportunities to improve effective communication. I built some meaningful relationships with other attendees when I attended Lynnsey's conference. It was my experience at this last Asbestos Litigation conference that she has the ability to bring in the right people with the right talent. The honest and open exchanges provided real information that can be used to more effectively represent the client and, generally, enabled a candid dialogue between members of an all too often polarized trial bar. The conference brought to the participants useful information and a basis for a more rational communications between litigants. It was unique in that such a litigation conference could provide such a balanced forum.
