DALLAS, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HB Litigation Conferences has selected noted personal injury and product liability attorney John Spillane of The Nemeroff Law Firm to chair a discussion on Daubert standards related to oil and gas drilling lawsuits. The Shale Gas Drilling Operations Litigation Conference offers litigators and industry experts a chance to discuss and explore trends and techniques in this developing legal arena.
Spillane will join a panel of experts discussing "Scientific Evidence – Daubert Issues Related to Personal Injury and Property Damage Claims." The session will focus on legal strategies, admissibility of expert witness testimony, reliable evidence, regulatory limits, expert selection, and the evaluation of potential environmental and health hazards.
"Years of work on complex matters that require selection and engagement with expert witnesses are required for any Daubert discussion," said Tom Hagy, CEO of HB Litigation Conferences. "John has the kind of strong experience in mass torts, asbestos and product liability litigation where intimate knowledge of Daubert issues is critical."
Spillane has litigated asbestos cases and defended client rights for more than a decade. A 1993 graduate of The Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University, Spillane joined The Nemeroff Law Firm, a national mesothelioma trial firm, in 2010. His work also extends beyond the courtroom, influencing plaintiff's rights legislation and presenting to conferences nationwide.
"Our focus is on drilling operations and working conditions that result in injuries to workers and those that live in communities surrounding natural gas drilling sites," Spillane said. "In order to deliver the best legal outcomes for these injured parties, we need to stay current with changing regulations and understand how the drilling industry is handling these issues."
The one-day conference is scheduled for October 3 in New York City. The event brings experienced litigators and environmental and industry professionals together to review current and emerging regulations and legal strategies.
