27th Annual CLE-Accredited Seminar on Complex Litigation Defense

April 30, 2015

Hollingsworth LLP hosted its 2015 CLE-accredited Seminar on Complex Litigation Defense, specifically designed to address the unique challenges facing in-house counsel in their business and risk management.

This year's speakers included leading litigators and preeminent outside experts, ConocoPhillips General Counsel Janet Langford Kelly, Peabody Energy Chief Legal Officer Alexander C. Schoch, and Harvard Professor Laurence H. Tribe, who discussed the current legal challenges facing corporate America and what corporate in-house counsel need to know to protect their business clients. 

The program reviewed big lessons from 2014 when the private plaintiffs' bar and government attorneys continued to press the boundaries of common and statutory law in their pursuit of the latest solvent bystanders.  Whether seeking out new theories of social media liability or attempting to revive old standbys like junk science, both government attorneys and the plaintiffs' bar are targeting deep-pocket defendants for huge payouts that have no foundation in the law, the facts, or the science.  See the Agenda from this year's program.

For the past twenty-six years, Hollingsworth LLP has hosted its acclaimed seminar focusing on the defense of complex litigation, drawing on our vast experience in the areas of pharmaceutical, toxic tort and product liability, environmental, federal claims, insurance, medical device, and government contracts defense.  Year after year, in-house counsel and corporate leaders return for informative presentations and provocative discussion with their peers.
