Pretrial Practice 2013

New York, New York and via live webcast
20 May 2013
Hosted By: the Practising Law Institute (PLI)

As fewer civil cases are tried, the staples of pretrial practice -- pleadings, motions to dismiss, discovery, Daubert motions, summary judgment, and settlement -- have replaced trials as the focus of litigation. This Practising Law Institute seminar, held in New York City and via live webcast on 20 May 2013, examined how the changing nature of pretrial practice will affect the future of litigation. NERA Senior Vice President Lucy P. Allen, who is frequently retained to testify as an expert witness, participated in a panel discussion on the use of experts, along with the Hon. Holly B. Fitzsimmons, Magistrate Judge, United States District Court, District of Connecticut; John Halebian, Partner, Lovell Stewart Halebian Jacobson LLP; and Jeffrey T. Scott, Partner, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP. Ms. Allen and her co-panelists discussed when to retain experts, testifying vs. consulting experts, protecting expert communications, preparing expert reports, taking discovery of experts, and Daubert motions.
