Sharla Frost cites Karen as a lawyer with the specialized skills needed in "Mastering the Mass Tort Docket."

Karen Ross was featured in Sharla Frost's "Mastering the Mass Tort Docket: How to Bring Order to Chaos–Management Models, Special Masters and Consolidated Dockets." Ms. Frost, a partner with Wilson Elser in Houston, presented the program at DRI's recent "Asbestos Medicine" litigation seminar.

"Every play needs a director and every mass tort docket needs someone to serve as the conduit for information. The skill set needed to organize and control a mass tort docket rivals the skill set needed to handle logistics for an army. One needs to be organized, focused and obsessive. It needs to be a lawyer because this air tra†ffic controller must have an understanding of the legal implications of decisions made and problems that arise. ... Tucker Ellis has Karen Ross. Other firms no doubt have lawyers who play similar roles, but the uncanny focus on detail constitutes the common characteristic of the people who handle this type of coordination. Having an individual or small team with an eye on the details and developments ensures consistent implementation of the defendant’s strategy across the venues where cases are pending and permits a close control of the sta†ng for depositions, hearings and trials."

The Asbestos Medicine litigation seminar was held on November 6-7 in San Francisco. Click here to read the full text of the presentation.
