HUNTINGTON -- Huddleston Bolen will host two seminars on the impact the 2010 Health Care Reform Law will have on businesses.

The free seminars will be held May 19 in Huntington at the Marshall University Foundation Hall, 519 John Marshall Drive, and on June 9 in Charleston at the Chase Tower Conference Center, 707 Virginia St. East.

Both sessions are scheduled to begin with a complimentary breakfast at 8 a.m. and conclude by 9:30 a.m. Guests may register at or by contacting Tasha Viglianco at 304-344-9869, 304-691-8474, or Seating is limited.

Titled "Need2Know: How the Health Care Reform Law will Impact Your Business," the seminar will feature Huddleston Bolen attorneys Luke Lafferre, Kevin Nelson and Michael Folio in a moderated cross-fire discussion of the positive and negative effects the new health care reforms will have on businesses.

With nearly two decades of experience representing clients in health care regulatory issues and litigation, Mr. Folio will frame and moderate the discussion. "Working with health care providers over the years, I have gained an understanding of their underlying business needs. I plan to use this perspective to frame up what will be an informative and engaging conversation," Folio said.

Kevin Nelson, managing partner of the firm's Charleston office, will outline how employers can take advantage of the law to benefit their business. Nelson has more than 20 years experience representing clients in employment law, benefits administration and compensation matters.

"New legislation always creates winners and losers. My goal is to point out how employers can use elements of the new law to their advantage," Nelson said.

Luke Lafferre will provide a cautionary tale, offering information about the new law that could negatively impact businesses and the economy. Lafferre is a partner and trial attorney in the firm's Huntington office. He has decades of experience representing Fortune 100 clients in the courtroom.

"It's important that businesses understand the threat this law poses to individual companies and the economy as a whole," Lafferre said.
