WILMIC Out and About in Wisconsin’s Legal Community

WILMIC’s CEO, Tom Watson, is settling into his new role and working hard to maintain one of the company’s core missions that he has helped establish over the past 17 years — engaging with Wisconsin lawyers in many settings. As the first quarter of 2022 nears its end, WILMIC has helped lead the way as many begin to creep out from the grips of the pandemic to attend in-person events.

WILMIC Senior Claims Attorney Brian Anderson kicked things off this year by attending the Bankruptcy, Insolvency and Creditors Rights Section (BICR) of the State Bar’s 2022 Educational/Social Retreat at the American Club in Kohler, which WILMIC sponsored. “BICR has been and continues to be at the forefront of presenting engaging education and networking opportunities for its members. WILMIC is proud to sponsor such a great event, and it was good to see some familiar colleagues face-to-face once again,” said Anderson.

On March 7th, Anderson and Business Development Manager Matt Beier braved the season’s last snow storm, traveling to Milwaukee for Attorney/Adjunct Professor Shannon Wynn’s “Starting and Managing Your Own Practice” class. Beier and Anderson presented WILMIC’s Anatomy of a Malpractice Insurance Policy to inquisitive and vocal law school students, who were incorporating the anticipated costs and benefits of insuring their future law practices into their final exam, a business plan for their firm. “Attorney Wynn has put together a ‘nuts-and-bolts’ curriculum that really focuses on the business side of running a law practice. The students were eager to learn as much as they could about a claims-made-and-reported policy, anticipated costs, and concepts like ‘prior acts coverage,’ ‘tail coverage,’ ‘burning limits’ and others.” This was a terrific opportunity for WILMIIC to share its knowledge with future attorneys in the early stages of their careers.

During that same week in March, Watson, Beier, and past CEO/President of WILMIC, Katja Kunzke, attended the WILMIC-sponsored State Bar of Wisconsin Young Lawyers Division Young Lawyers Conference at the Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells. Kunzke was honored for her years of dedication to the YLD’s cause with the Young Lawyers Division Service Award. Kunzke expressed her appreciation and admiration of Wisconsin lawyers and, in true Kunzke fashion, compared lawyers taking on clients’ challenges to a mother’s role in “…running toward projectile vomiting!” In an emotional speech, Kunzke encouraged YLD members to persevere and overcome the many challenges facing them in order to serve the noble legal profession in society.

Practice 411, the State Bar of Wisconsin’s Law Office Management Assistance Program and Chris Shattuck were hosted by Beier on March 15th at WILMIC’s offices for a brown bag lunch (which included Hurts Donuts!) discussion group. “WILMIC tries to keep its fingers on the pulse of Wisconsin lawyers’ needs and concerns at every level. Chris Shattuck’s brown bag lunches cover a wide variety of issues and offer an opportunity for informal discussion and problem-solving.”

To round out March, WILMIC stayed connected virtually with its immensely popular “Free-CLE Fridays with WILMIC – The Practitioner Series” presented by Zoom over the lunch hour on March 18th. The program’s title was, “Don’t Panic: The Hitchhiker’s Guide (OK, the Lawyer’s) Guide to Grievances,” and was presented by Beier and featured practitioner, Attorney Stacie Rosenzweig. WILMIC introduced the Free-CLE Fridays service for policyholders last year. These are virtual one-hour programs offered over the lunch hour and are free to policyholders, who can get their CLE credits without leaving their homes or offices! If you missed this one, “don’t panic,” we will provide one program per quarter. Just look for WILMIC’s e-mail and click the register button to sign up.
