She will kick off the all-day virtual seminar with a welcome and introduction. During a session titled "Effective Use of Authority in Appeals," Erica will moderate a panel of judges from three different appellate courts who will discuss how to use caselaw, statutes, secondary, sources, and other authorities to make appellate arguments more persuasive and how to present those authorities in a manner that is effective and helpful to the court.

Erica represents clients in complex commercial disputes primarily in the areas of tort and product liability, consumer fraud, business torts, and breach of contract actions. Erica's product liability defense work spans many industries, with particular experience in FDA-approved medical devices, representing a major medical device manufacturer in federal and state courts throughout the country. She has also developed specialized experience providing advice and compliance support to government contractors and companies on public law issues, particularly state and federal open records laws, including the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act and the federal Freedom of Information Act. Erica is also an experienced appellate attorney. She has authored, co-authored, and edited dozens of appellate briefs, and is frequently sought out to provide advice on appeals in the Eighth Circuit and the appellate courts of Minnesota.
