Chris R. Hedican, Partner

Practice Areas: Employee Benefits & ERISA, Labor and Employment Law, and Litigation

What has been the most meaningful lesson you have learned since COVID-19 disrupted your “normal” routine (work or personal)?

  • I like being around my family as much as remote work has now allowed me. I really miss the in-person aspects of my job, especially trial and depositions. I miss seeing clients and friends from PLAN and taking my daughter to Broadway. I took too much in my life for granted.

When things return to “normal,” what is the one thing you cannot wait to do?

  • Sit in a crowded bar and have an IPA with a lot of friends and go to see the Iowa Hawkeyes beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers in football in person…..again.

 

Heidi A. Gutteau, Partner

Practice Areas: Employee Benefits & ERISA, Labor and Employment Law, and Litigation

What has been the most meaningful lesson you have learned since COVID-19 disrupted your “normal” routine (work or personal)?

  • To enjoy extra time with my kiddos and that they actually will always choose to do yardwork over homework if given the choice. My yard has never looked better!

When things return to “normal,” what is the one thing you cannot wait to do?

  • Hug my parents.

 

Scott P. Moore, Partner

Practice Areas: Fair Housing & Public Accommodation Law, Labor and Employment Law, and Litigation

What has been the most meaningful lesson you have learned since COVID-19 disrupted your “normal” routine (work or personal)?

  • The importance of collaboration and interacting with my colleagues in person. I really miss the ability to just go down to my colleagues’ offices and get their input. That collaboration results in a better legal product. It is also important for morale and well-being. That is obviously more difficult with most of them working remotely. This pandemic will likely lead to more people working from home which I believe will be negative for attorneys. 

When things return to “normal,” what is the one thing you cannot wait to do?

  • A lot of things. Go to a Husker game, the beach or take my kids to Disney World. 

 

Jennifer D. Tricker, Partner

Practice Areas: Construction, Litigation, Product Liability, and Transportation

What has been the most meaningful lesson you have learned since COVID-19 disrupted your “normal” routine (work or personal)?

  • I have learned that I want to and need to spend more time with my family when things return to “normal.”  The forced family togetherness made me realize how much time I spend running around to make my world stay on track, but that such behavior is sometimes at the detriment of the experiences I share with my family. My kids are growing so quickly and I need to remember that this time is fleeting and to embrace it while it lasts.

When things return to “normal,” what is the one thing you cannot wait to do?

  • Hug my parents.
