Lieff Cabraser partner Annika K. Martin will be featured as a distinguished faculty member at The Sedona Conference Institute’s eDiscovery Negotiation Training: Practical Cooperative Strategies Program on March 1-2, 2016 at the Offices of Sidley Austin in Washington, D.C.
Under the supervision of veteran trial lawyers, eDiscovery experts, and judges, participants will be led through a pre-trial skills program where they will be trained to effectively negotiate with the opposing counsel. This program also includes a litigation hypothetical and mock exercises, in which participants will have the opportunity to explore practical cooperative strategies relating to conflicts that commonly occur for electronically stored information.
A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office, Ms. Martin has represented plaintiffs since 2005 in environmental, mass tort, and consumer protection cases, including plaintiffs with physical and economic injuries resulting from accidents involving GM vehicles sold with a defective ignition switch; patients nationwide suffering from the widespread outbreak of meningitis and other serious maladies caused by contaminated medications; and individuals and businesses across the Gulf Coast harmed by the blowout on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in class action litigation against BP, Transocean, and Halliburton.
An active member of the legal community, Ms. Martin serves as the Co-Vice Chair of AAJ’s Class Action Litigation Group and on several AAJ committees, including Amicus Curiae, Legal Affairs, Publications, and Public Education. She is a working group co-captain for Women En Mass and serves on the Consumer Affairs committee of the Bar Association of New York City. Ms. Martin is member of both The Sedona Conference Working Group 1 on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1) and Working Group 8 on Mass Torts and Punitive Damages (WG8).
