Drew Eckl & Farnham sponsor Association of Corporate Counsel - Sister to Sister Webcast
Drew Eckl & Farnham sponsored the first of a four part webinar series titled “Sister to Sister: Each One Teach One” with the Association of Corporate Counsel. Attorneys Douglas Burrell and J.C. Roper were included in the call and collaborated with 80+ in-house African American women. The webinar was a huge success and had a great turnout!
Douglas Burrell believes that his primary focus is to be a strategic partner with his clients. It is important that he understands his client's business, the people, the problems faced, and budgetary constraints that can impact the client's ability to resolve problems. Douglas has been a practicing trial lawyer for over 24 years. He developed comprehensive experience while serving as first chair on more than 40 jury trials and more than 100 bench trials. He has also taken and defended hundreds of depositions.
J.C. focuses his practice in workers' compensation defense litigation representing Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 corporations, as well as other employers, insurers, and self-insured corporations ranging from retail, manufacturing, full and quick service restaurants, hotel/hospitality, nursing homes, construction companies, lumber/timber companies, road/bridge construction, and other industries. He has tried numerous cases before the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation, argued appeals in Superior Courts, and defended claims through the state Supreme Court level over the past two decades.
