The first MTMP since the pandemic was an overwhelming success. Attendance was great and the vendor area seemed to be more packed than usual. Wednesday’s “Business of Law” seminar was great this year. There were some very educational discussions on TV and Digital Marketing. It was also interesting seeing the difference in approaches that ranged from straight campaign management full service signed packets for individual torts. It’s amazing to see the specialization that has grown over the past 10 years. Attorneys can now hand pick who the want to work with for marketing, intake service, medical records and practice management software. The increased competition in all these areas has inspired all of us to be better at what we do.
A lot of the discussion seemed to center around Paraquat, CPAP, Zantac and Talc. Each of these litigations pose their own unique set of issues and qualifying criteria that is constantly changing. These conferences give all of us a chance to learn what we can from the leadership on each tort so we can support each case to the best of our abilities. One of the biggest advantages to attending these MTMP conferences, is being able to turn in any direction and get an educated viewpoint from attorneys and vendors alike on the challenges and opportunities of each tort.

The 2021 November MTMP also marked the inaugural “Lawyers on the Links” golf tournament. Over 50 attorneys and sponsors teed it up at Bali Hai for a day of food, beverages and the occasional good golf shot. The four main sponsors were Market My Market, Velawcity, Epiq and Counsel Financial. Our other sponsors included National Record Retrieval, Smart Advocate and Dalimonte Reub.
It was a sunny but VERY windy day that began with a putting and chipping contest. Many of the participants came straight from the airport which didn’t cause an issue since we had plenty of room to store luggage and tons of rental clubs on hand to provide to anyone who needed them.
We decided to fly our videographer out to the event to document all of the action. Our final video showed just how enjoyable the day was. The short video shows pieces from each part of the day including the mingling at the Tiki Bar, putting and chipping contest, followed by some on course action and a group shot of the winning team. I didn’t see too many people on the driving range warming up but just about everyone had a can of “aiming fluid” or two to make sure their body was good an loose to start the day.
The sponsors provided lunch an open bar and over $5,000 in prizes to give away to the players. It was a scramble format with live scoring through the Golf Genius app so you could track how good…or bad your team was doing in real time. Not everyone played well but EVERYBODY had fun. We’re looking forward to sponsoring the event again in April of 2022.
