Laver and Vanessa Mendelewski, can be found here.

The Risk Roundtable covers interesting hot topics and changes in the law that may impact insurance clients throughout the industry. This podcast provides claims and litigation management professionals an opportunity to learn strategies to mitigate risk and improve their business’ bottom line.

Each episode is hosted by Weber Gallagher attorneys from different areas of expertise across the firm. This series delivers leading industry insights from our lawyers regarding professional liability, insurance coverage, employment, workers’ compensation, general liability and more.
