Lieff Cabraser attorneys Annika K. Martin and Jason L. Lichtman will be speaking at Georgetown Law’s 14th Annual Advanced eDiscovery Institute from November 16-17, 2017 at the JW Marriott in Washington DC.
In addition to serving on the Advisory Board for the Georgetown Advanced eDiscovery Institute, Ms. Martin will be featured on the panel “From Terabytes to Binders: Fusing Discovery and Advocacy Strategies.” The panel will focus on learning how to build effective discovery strategies based on client goals, the ability to differentiate quality from quantity in discovery, and identifying the judicial incentives to case management tied to what is at stake in the litigation.
Mr. Lichtman will appear on the panel “Motions Practice? Don’t Just Go Through the Motions.” Panelists will be talking about crafting compelling discovery motions and responses, how skilled advocates get to what matters in motions hearings, and how to acquire strategies to communicate complex technical matters.
