Video Depositions: The Case for Their Continued Relevance in a Post-Quarantine World (04/06/2021)

Program Number: 3181 Presenter: John C. Browne, Esq., Jeremy P. Robinson, Esq.

The program will explore the impact of the pandemic on depositions, and make the case for video depositions becoming a permanent part of the litigation process in our post-pandemic world. As we approach the one-year anniversary, the dramatic impact of the shutdown on litigation has come into focus. While the pandemic has created many challenges, there have also been some silver linings, among them the rise of video depositions. This session will examine the dramatic changes that the transition to remote depositions has created, discuss best practices for conducting video depositions, and argue for this new approach to become a permanent option in a post-pandemic world, given the dramatic improvements this method provides for both client expense and convenience. We’ll also propose changes to the federal rules that would eliminate some of the unnecessary negotiations currently involved in arranging for a video deposition.

Smells Like Teen Hackers: The Secret Origin Story of American Cybersecurity (03/30/2021)

Program Number: 3178 Presenter: David Kalat

This webinar explores how fictional scares and even more worrisome “stranger than fiction” scares in 1983 led to the enactment of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFA) and the Computer Security Act of 1987. The historical framing is used to explain why certain limitations or peculiar features of these laws were enacted. This discussion also examines criticisms of these computer security laws by civil libertarians and privacy advocates, and ways in which the laws have been challenged and amended to address those critiques. In many ways, the secret origin story of American cybersecurity begins in 1983, when the very idea of computer crimes seemed to many like science fiction. Personal computers were still a novelty, and the only users of the Internet were government scientists. But U.S. defense analysts foresaw risks from hostile governments like Russia, as well as terrorists and criminals, not to mention mischief from garden variety hackers. Their

In the Spotlight: Effective Strategies to Avoid Ethics Violations When Practicing Virtually (04/07/2021)

Program Number: 3176 Presenter: Francine Friedman Griesing, Esq.

The good old days when we worked in person, used real documents, and appeared in person for depositions, meetings and court are in the past. The recent changes due to Covid-19 and the necessity of working remotely have further revolutionized the legal profession. Technology makes it easier to generate documents and electronic communications, increased the use of remote operations, and enabled us to participate in legal proceedings from a personal device rather than in person. Due to recent events, the legal profession has been forced to pivot to rely on remote proceedings. Whether we are attending meetings, conducting depositions, interviewing witnesses, arguing before judicial officers or mediating a dispute, we are likely doing it over a virtual platform. Even after we resume primarily in person practice, the cost savings and ease of practicing remotely will likely keep these processes in place. In this program, we will discuss effective ways to

Discovery Issues in Litigation Finance (03/24/2021)

Program Number: 3171 Presenter: Andrew Goldenberg, Esq.

Litigation finance is where a nonparty funds a plaintiff’s lawsuit in exchange for an interest in the recovery. Some recent estimates place the size of the litigation finance market at over $100 billion. This burgeoning industry has allowed for greater flexibility in how individuals, businesses and law firms approach litigation. Litigation funding opens up opportunities for litigants which would otherwise not exist due to the risk, complexity and expense associated with litigation. In this program, Andrew Goldenberg of Goldenberg Law, LLC (www.glawnyc.com ), will address the basics of litigation finance and how the increased use of litigation funding has resulted in more demand for disclosure of documents and communications concerning litigation funding arrangements, as well as recent court decisions that have impacted litigation finance discovery.

Teleworking and Re-Opening and Vaccines, Oh My! (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3170 Presenter: Crystal McElrath, Esq., Nichole Novosel, Esq.

In the face of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many employers have had to consider both the business and legal implications of ceasing operations versus shifting to telework versus attempting to continue in-person work. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines adds additional questions regarding re-opening of workplaces. This webinar will address recent executive orders, federal legislation as well as guidance from the EEOC and OSHA regarding teleworking, re-opening, and vaccination of employees. Does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect employees at risk of contracting COVID-19? When should/must employers provide teleworking options? May/should employers require employees to be vaccinated? What liability might employers face with respect to requiring and/or administering the vaccine in order to re-open?

Digital Transformation: Developing the Legal Team’s Action Plan (03/31/2021)

Program Number: 3168 Presenter: Glynna K. Christian, Esq., Jeffrey R. Seul, Esq.

Companies in traditional industries are reinventing their products, services, and business models around advanced technologies.

This webinar will provide an overview of the digital transformation trend, identify some major implications of digital transformation for companies in traditional industries, and provide guidance to help lawyers create and follow an action plan to support their clients’ digital transformation strategies.

Internal Investigations – Top Tips, Strategies and Considerations (03/23/2021)

Program Number: 3167 Presenter: Wilfredo A. 'Willy' Ferrer, Esq., Michael Hantman, Esq.

As we enter a new presidential administration where the expectation is that law enforcement and regulatory scrutiny will increase, American businesses need to be prepared. Internal investigations are key parts of corporate life today. But if not conducted the right way following processes that are sound, tested and beyond reproach, an internal investigation might never get off the ground and might result in greater problems for the company. Whether triggered by a grand jury subpoena, a whistleblower or an enforcement action, internal investigations must be taken very seriously and should be run by personnel who are free from conflicts with every step and strategy mapped out clearly and in advance. And in the time of COVID-19, we will address new options to consider if travel is unsafe. Our presentation will highlight best practices – and pitfalls to avoid – when conducting an internal investigation.

Handling Death Cases in New York (05/14/2021)

Program Number: 3166 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

To recover damages for a person’s death in New York State, there are two distinct causes of action: survivorship and wrongful death. While the survivorship cause of action belongs to the estate for the decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death, the wrongful death cause of action compensates those statutory distributees who have suffered pecuniary loss as a result of the decedent's death. Consequently, there may be more than one plaintiff in a death case as well as separate statutes of limitations for each cause of action. Due to these distinctions, an attorney must assess each action independently of the other. Join us to learn the distinction between survivorship and wrongful death.
