Partner Philip Becnel was a presenter at a panel discussion held in D.C. at the annual meeting of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association. Philip’s lecture, titled “Convictions and Lies: Conducting Background Investigations on Your Clients,” discussed how plaintiff employment attorneys could better vet their clients prior to initiating costly lawsuits without having all of the facts. Philip recommended background checks using open-source records and having a private investigator conduct behavioral-analysis interviews of potential clients prior to filing the complaint.
