The Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF) presents a CLE panel discussion on "What They Don’t Teach in Law School About How Law Firms Really Work" at the BASF Conference Center on February 23, 2015. Lieff Cabraser attorney Kelly M. Dermody will be one of the distinguished speakers at the event. Topics of discussion will include the different firm models and practice groups, how clients are retained, the common fee arrangements for law firms, and how to succeed in a firm’s internal marketplace.
Dermody is the managing partner in our San Francisco office and chair of Lieff Cabraser’s employment practice group. She specializes in class and collective actions on behalf of plaintiffs in employment and consumer cases. Dermody supervises many of the most significant and challenging employment class action lawsuits in our nation today, including complaints brought by female and minority professionals alleging gender and race discrimination by top Wall Street and Silicon Valley firms, wage suppression claims by technology companies, and overtime pay lawsuits against nationally prominent corporations.
