On April 14-15, 2011, Dickinson Wright member, D. Lee Khachaturian, will be presenting at the DRI Business Litigation and Intellectual Property Seminar -"Winning Strategies for Hard Cases" in Chicago, IL.
This program is structured around a hypothetical drawn from a real life situation facing a corporation and its outside counsel - a mix of business disputes, trademark infringement, unfair competition, franchise rights, a fight for an injunction and discovery disputes galore.
Expert speakers will include nationally recognized trial lawyers, expert witnesses, in-house counsel and litigation consultants. The two day conference features two tracks, one chaired by Jeffrey H. Kass of Gallop Johnson & Neuman LC in St. Louis, and the other chaired by Kathleen Lang of Dickinson Wright. Joining Kathleen Lang on Day 1 will be D. Lee Khachaturian presenting on "Wearing the Company Uniform: Appreciating the Power and Pitfalls of Rule 30(b)(6)", addressing how Rule 30(b)(6) "corporate depositions" can be a valuable tool or miserable headache for litigants. Ms. Khachaturian will discuss the strategy and tactics of framing and responding to topics, selecting and preparing corporate witnesses, and defending the deposition itself.
