Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP partner Kendra L. Basner in Hinshaw's San Francisco office and member of the Lawyers for the Profession® group, authored "Location, Location, Location: What's the Best Venue for Malpractice Claims?" for the ABA/BNA Lawyers' manual on Professional Conduct. The article summarizes the panel on the topic for the ABA's recent National Legal Malpractice Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Ms. Basner discusses various factors that go into deciding the best venue for malpractice claims. These factors include the pros and cons of arbitration, choosing between a federal and state court, exploring whether a legal malpractice action fares better before a judge, jury or arbitrators and deciding the value of including an arbitration provision in an agreement for legal services.
