UPCOMING EVENT: RULES AMENDMENTS ROADSHOW

Hello “Proportionality,” Goodbye “Reasonably Calculated”: Reinventing Case Management and Discovery Under the 2015 Civil Rules Amendments

Presented by: the ABA Section of Litigation & Duke Law

Join us in Seattle on April 29, 2016

The most significant changes to discovery and case management practices in more than a decade, the 2015 Amendments to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 16, 26, 34 and 37, took effect on December 1, 2015. The American Bar Association Section of Litigation and the Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies are jointly presenting this unprecedented, 18-city series of dialogues, led by national thought leaders and including local judges, magistrates, and top practitioners in each city. The goal: to further the understanding of the case-management techniques that will help courts and litigants realize the Amendments’ full potential to make discovery more targeted, less expensive, and more effective in achieving justice.

Based on local requests, this popular program has been expanded from the original 13-city tour to 18. Each three-hour program features leaders from the Rules amendment process, who walk the audience through the Amendments and their implications for civil litigation. Spirited panel discussions among local District Court Judges, Magistrate Judges, and leading litigators then explore the Amendments’ practical discovery implications and best practices for case management under the amended Rules. Each program’s attendees discuss application of the new rules to a variety of hypothetical cases and leave with a toolbox of techniques for putting the Amendments into practice.

Federal Rule Changes Affect e-Discovery – Are You Ready This Time?

Learn Strategies for Litigating in the New Framework

Join Us For a Complimentary 3 Hour CLE

Important updates and revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure take effect on December 1, 2015, absent (unlikely) action by Congress. These changes will undoubtedly have a substantial effect on litigation (and pre-litigation) strategies and practice, particularly with regard to discovery. Issues addressed by the amendments include — among others — the scope of discovery, responses and objections to requests for production, and preservation (or loss) of electronically stored information.

Please join us for a lively and informative strategic discussion of the amendments, the ways they will affect your future practice and cases, and the steps you can take to address and embrace the new paradigms shaped by these changes. In-house counsel will join members of the K&L Gates global e-Discovery Analysis & Technology practice group to address the significance of these rule changes, their ethical implications for legal practitioners, the opportunities for advocacy afforded by the rules’ increased attention to proportionality, and the practical effects of these rule changes on record preservation practices.

Live programs will take place on December 1st in Seattle, WA and December 3rd in Pittsburgh, PA.  These programs will also be available via webinar.

Upcoming Event: Mastering E-Discovery, Litigation Holds & Metadata (Live CLE/Telephonic Seminar, organized by The Rossdale Group)

Thursday, March 6, 2014
Noon – 1:30 ET

Join K&L Gates attorneys Thomas E. Kelly and Bree Kelly and their fellow panelists Elizabeth Treubert Simon, Of Counsel at Vorys, and Jay G. Safer, Partner at Locke Lord, for this informative and timely discussion of important issues in electronic discovery.

Attorneys today must understand and advise clients on the winning tactics and techniques governing electronic discovery, litigation holds, and metadata. The laws governing e-discovery have changed considerably in recent years with rapid advancements in technology. In addition, almost all computer applications and platforms generate metadata, which can be disastrous for your clients. Metadata comes to the fore at each phase of the e-discovery process, including in inadvertent disclosures, meet-and-confer, culling/reviewing/coding, and planning.

This seminar provides guidance so attorneys and legal professionals can easily grasp the current requirements mandated under the law, revised e-discovery practices, concerns involving metadata, and compliance required for effective retention and destruction of electronically stored information. This seminar will examine the full extent of the duty to preserve electronic evidence and provide practical strategies for streamlining efforts to minimize costs and time in e-discovery. Our nationally distinguished faculty will discuss the latest techniques in legal hold letters, metadata, document management, and means to use electronic discovery to your client’s advantage. Register today to enroll in this convenient, live telephonic seminar on E-Discovery, Litigation Holds, & Metadata CLE.”
