The complexity of multi-district litigation entails a large volume of information and requires all parties involved to communicate efficiently and in a timely manner. Success relies on both the various legal teams and technology working together in harmony. The system is often stalled by a failure of one or both of these elements. All parties can be assured of a smooth process provided the proper technology and procedures are in place.

The upcoming webcast will be looking specifically at these issues and how best to be prepared in the event of a MDL.

Topics to be covered are:

•What procedures should be in place and what course of action should be taken when you are faced with a MDL?

•How do you ensure that the plaintiffs and the defense communicate effectively – make yourself heard and understood clearly.

•The growing importance of e-discovery and how it has affected the MDL process – is it more complex or has it made the process smoother?

In this special presentation, you will hear from three very different perspectives:

Laura Kibbe, Senior Corporate Counsel, Pfizer

Keith Altman, Partner, Finkelstein & Partners, LLC

Rebecca Prince, National Litigatin Technology Manager, McDermott Will & Emery
