October 9, 2014

We are pleased to announce that Patricia M. Hamill, Partner at Conrad O’Brien, has been invited to speak at an upcoming Symposium, featuring an array of leading attorneys representing students in campus  disciplinary proceedings and in state and federal courts.  The Symposium, “Navigating Due Process and Title IX Issues in Campus Sexual Assault Procedures:  Constitutional, Statutory, Contractual, and Tort Considerations”, will be held in Washington, D.C. at the law offices of DLA Piper on Friday, October 17th.  Patricia will be a panelist discussing, “Tips from the Trenches:  Effectively Representing Students in Campus Sexual Assault Proceedings and Related Litigation.”  Patricia will be joined on the panel by Michael K. Allen of Michael K. Allen & Associations and Matthew G. Kaiser of The Kaiser Law Firm PLLC.

Patricia is co-chair of Conrad O’Brien’s Complex Commercial Litigation Group.  She represents college students accused of sexual misconduct both in university disciplinary proceedings as well as in breach of contract and Title IX litigation against their colleges and universities in the wake of student disciplinary hearings, a burgeoning area of practice in light of Department of Education investigations.  Patricia has spent nearly 30 years appearing in federal and state courts throughout the country successfully representing insurance and Fortune 500 companies in the defense of consumer fraud and securities class action lawsuits as well as other complex commercial or business-to-business litigation.  Her clients include Fortune 500 companies and corporate officers in a wide range of industries including technology, securities, insurance, and healthcare. While Patricia has deep expertise in the civil arena, she also represents, counsels and conducts internal investigations for clients who face potential criminal liability from federal and state grand jury investigations into False Claims, bribes, kickbacks, identity theft, and other frauds, as well as SEC and FINRA investigations involving 10(b)-5 claims, insider trading or breaches of duty.  For more information on the event or to register, please click here.
