Late last month, Everlaw sponsored the Bolch Judicial Institute’s Proportionality Conference. Held in Washington, D.C. on June 20-21, this was an invitation-only Distinguished Lawyers conference on Evaluating the 2015 Rule 26 Discovery-Proportionality Amendments and Bolch-Duke Guidelines and Best Practices.
Panelists at the event included partners at several law firms, including Winston & Strawn LLP, Dechert LLP, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, and Hausfeld, as well as a number of U.S. District Court judges. They discussed the effects of the 2015 Rule Amendments, how to evaluate amendment provisions, and applying proportionality to large, complex cases with massive volume of documents, among other things.
We were fortunate enough to also host a dinner for the conference speakers at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City’s Chesapeake View room. The speakers enjoyed a lively conversation about the latest trends and issues in litigation, while admiring the stunning views of DC and the Potomac River. It was an honor to meet and learn from so many distinguished practitioners and judges. Many of their contributions to the law and to the EDRM have defined key principles at the core of our work at Everlaw.
