DLA Piper, World’s Largest Law Firm, to Present at Obamacare Summit 2015 and LEAP 2015 Employment Law Conference
Falls Church, Va. — Business Management Daily and The HR Specialist announce that DLA Piper, the world’s largest law firm, will present at their 2nd annual Obamacare Summit and the 11th annual Employment Law Advanced Practices (LEAP) Conference in April.
Mark Boxer, a partner in DLA Piper’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation practice, based in San Francisco, is set to speak at the conferences. Boxer has been a benefits attorney for more than 20 years, advising employers on all aspects of employee benefit matters. He has been listed in Best Lawyers in America for the past 12 years. Boxer is also a former health care administrator, which gives him a unique perspective on the ACA.
Also speaking at the Obamacare Summit and LEAP is Anne Pachciarek, a partner in the Chicago office of DLA Piper, who specializes in helping companies operate their employee benefit plans. Pachciarek has over 20 years of experience working with public companies as well as closely held businesses. She has written articles, presented webinars and delivered live presentations on the ACA with a special focus on the law’s employer mandate, planning for ACA implementation and how health care reform can impact companies’ bottom lines.
“We are very excited to have Mark and Anne as presenters at the Obamacare Summit and LEAP,” says Business Management Daily’s Publisher Adam Goldstein. “They are extremely knowledgeable about the Affordable Care Act and other employment law issues and will offer great insight and advice to our conference and webcast attendees.”
Also presenting at both the Obamacare Summit and LEAP is Karl Ahlrichs, SPHR, consultant and business developer for Indiana insurance agency Gregory and Appel. He was a founding partner of HR services firm ExactHire and has also held senior-level positions with Marsh & McLennan, Professional Staff Management and Right Management Consultants.
The Obamacare Summit, April 8, and LEAP, April 8-10, will both be held at the legendary Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas. The Obamacare Summit is also available to watch via live, interactive webcast.
Among the topics that the speakers will address at the Obamacare Summit are the status of legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act, understanding the employer mandate and how to avoid penalties for noncompliance, and how to file Forms 1094 and 1095 and other ACA-related recordkeeping requirements.
LEAP will cover a variety of employment law topics ranging from the FMLA and ADA to employee handbooks and overtime.
