Cassidy Chivers and Kendra Basner Author Article "Actions Speak Louder Than Words: The Legal Ethics of Equality"

February 8, 2016

Cassidy E Chivers and Kendra L. Basner, San Francisco-based partners in the Litigators for the Profession® group at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, authored the article "Actions Speak Louder Than Words: The Legal Ethics of Equality" published by The Recorder on February 5, 2016. 

The article discusses the issue of legal ethics of equality, specifically taking a look at how the American Bar Association makes an effort to maintain a commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. The article then examines whether the principle and practice of the ethics of equality are mirrored, as legal ethics do not regulate the conduct of lawyers and only regulates the basic methods, assumptions, and propositions upon which the legal system is based on. 

Cassidy Chivers focuses her practice on complex insurance coverage disputes and insurance litigation in both state and federal courts. She is experienced in coverage analysis and negotiation in multiple jurisdictions, including California, Nevada and Georgia.

Kendra Basner represents clients in a variety of litigation matters. She focuses her practice on professional liability with an emphasis on the defense of professional malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty claims against lawyers. She also handles general civil litigation and complex insurance coverage disputes.
