DiGennaro to Speak at ABA National Legal Malpractice Conference

September 22, 2016 | Professional Liability | Compliance Investigations & White Collar | Directors & Officers Liability

Janice DiGennaro will participate in a panel discussion entitled, “Use and Defense of Experts in Legal Malpractice Cases,” at the American Bar Association National Legal Malpractice Conference on September 22, in Chicago.

Use and Defense of Experts in Legal Malpractice Cases
The latitude with which an opposing expert is permitted to testify at trial can have a potentially significant impact on your case. Many legal malpractice plaintiff lawyers are unfamiliar with the limitations that may constrain their experts, and proceed to trial with the often false confidence that their theories will be strongly backed up by expert testimony. A meaningful understanding of the most effective attacks on legal malpractice expert testimony will put you in the best position to frustrate those expectations, and also make your own use of experts more effective and less subject to challenge. You will learn about tactics and strategic thinking to apply in making decisions to challenge the other sides’ expert. You will understand issues such as timing of objections, allowing a “bad” expert to go unchallenged, and developing settlement leverage through tactical timing
