Lieff Cabraser attorneys Mark P. Chalos and Annika K. Martin will speak at a Tennessee Bar Association CLE class “The Rules of the Game are Changing – What Lawyers and Judges Need to Know,” on Wednesday, December 2, 2015.
Significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will take effect on December 1, 2015. The amendments include changing the definition of discoverable information under Rule 26. There are additional amendments expected as well, including amendments that could significantly affect Rule 23 relating to class actions.
The managing partner of the firm’s Nashville office, Chalos represents individuals who have suffered catastrophic personal injuries and families whose loved ones died due to the negligence or misconduct of others. He has obtained millions of dollars in settlements for families who have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of others.
Martin is a partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office and has represented plaintiffs since 2005 in environmental, mass tort, and consumer protection cases. For the past four years, she has been representing individuals, property owners, and business owners across the Gulf Coast in class action litigation against BP, Transocean, Halliburton, and the other companies responsible for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig blowout.
