The live, bi-monthly webinars offer free, practical tips on current and emerging legal issue for professionals to more effectively manage their practice. Gordon & Rees attorneys provide claims professionals, in house and general counsel, and attorneys in all practice areas with a convenient way to stay up to speed with simple steps they can implement to protect themselves and their firms from malpractice exposure.
For the July webinar, attorneys from Gordon & Rees’s Professional Liability Defense Practice Group, in conjunction with the E-Discovery Practice Group, will discuss the major amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that went into effect on December 1, 2015. Gordon & Rees partners Jeffrey Lilly, Andrew Cary, and Heather Kelly will address the key portions of the recent amendments, how early caselaw is interpreting them, and practice pointers for you and your clients to use the new rules to your best advantage and also avoid exposure and potential sanctions for a claim of spoliation due to failing to take reasonable steps to preserve potentially relevant information. A Q&A session will follow the webinar.
