Annika K. Martin to Lead Discussion on Proportionality at 2016 Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum

The second annual Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum will be held on September 23, 2016 at the Minneapolis Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The event’s first discussion group, “Proportionality a year after the Amendments,” will be led by Annika K. Martin of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, Jacksy Bilsborrow of Weitz & Luxenberg, and Zachary Wool of Barrios Kingsdorf & Casteix and will focus on revisiting the December 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The Proportionality discussion will explore what experience and case law have revealed to be the most effective strategy for plaintiffs to ensure they have a maximal opportunity to pursue discovery.

About the Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum

The Complex Litigation E-Discovery Forum (CLEF) is an annual forum for plaintiffs’-side complex litigation attorneys to share experiences, lessons learned, and best practices to address electronic discovery issues unique to the plaintiffs’ bar. The invitation-only forum is an e-discovery think-tank, not a CLE.
