On June 23, Lauren Teukolsky moderated a panel entitled, "Distress Call: How to Evaluate Claims of Financial Distress by Defendants in Wage-and-Hour Cases." The panel was part of an Advanced Wage & Hour Conference held by the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA), a statewide organization of nearly 1,300 plaintiff-side employment attorneys. Ms. Teukolsky is currently the Co-Chair of CELA's Wage & Hour Committee. Panel speakers included Vanessa Hill, a CPA with Evidentia Consulting; Jim Zimmer, a licensed private investigator and President of Benchmark Investigations; Lynn Frank, a mediator with more than 30 years of experience helping parties to resolve complex litigation; and Ken Yoon, a wage-and-hour class action attorney with significant experience. The panel provided practical guidance to plaintiffs' attorneys who are faced with claims of financial distress from defendants, both companies and individuals.
Ms. Teukolsky is a frequent speaker at conferences on topics of employment law and litigation. She has two upcoming speaking engagements: one virtual appearance for the California Lawyers Association (formerly State Bar) Labor & Employment Section on emerging wage and hour trends, and one in-person appearance in Las Vegas for the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA) Annual Conference on opposing motions to compel arbitration.
Lauren Teukolsky is the founder and owner of Teukolsky Law, A Professional Corporation.
