General Counsel Erin Varriano participated in Battle of the Barristers

Erin Varriano, General Counsel for John L. Scott, recently participated in the “Battle of the Barristers” at Meydenbauer Center, an annual event that is sponsored by Seattle King County REALTORS®. Over 600 Realtors attended this event that featured some of the most prominent attorneys in the Greater Puget Sound including Annie Fitzsimmons (the legal hotline lawyer for Washington REALTORS®), Chris Osborne, Lars Neste and Mike Spence. The event covered a number of topics including the upcoming legislative changes that affect Buyer Representation agreements, the national lawsuits and a hodgepodge of legal topics that Realtors face on a daily basis.

It was Erin’s first time participating in the event but she represented John L. Scott with well thought out positions and a few comic reliefs that got the entire audience laughing. “I had a great time and really enjoyed the camaraderie of my fellow Barristers. I think we presented scenarios and best practices that could be applied immediately to all attending, and I appreciate the willingness of our Realtor communities to continue to hone their craft by attending these events.”
