Litigation Cost Management: Latest Developments and Perspectives
Clients and lawyers alike have been talking about cost management for years, a discussion that heightened in intensity with the economic downturn. Yet, given lawyers' historical training, these topics remain somewhat foreign to most of them. Legal Cost Control addresses the newest topics in this critical area, including the judiciary's role in litigation cost management, project management techniques, and the latest topics in value billing.
William A. Nolan, Barnes & Thornburg, is the organizer of this cost management 3.0 CLE hour program scheduled for October 4 from 9:00am - 12:15pm.
A panel presentation on e-discovery issues and their impact on litigation costs and strategies will include Julie Brown, litigation technology manager, Vorys Sater Seymour & Pease; Geoff Wilcox, Executive Vice President, Black Letter Discovery; and Nicolas LaBuz, Electronic Discovery Manager, Clearwell Systems.
Judge Stephen L. McIntosh, Franklin County Common Pleas Court, will cover judicial perspectives on litigation costs and the Court's role. The seminar will conclude with panel members Evelyn Sullen Smith, General Counsel – Americas (Marketing Organization), Mettler Toledo, Inc.; Patrick D Cornelius, Squire Sanders & Dempsey, and William Nolan discussing developments and trends in project management and other value practices.
