Gibbs Law Group partner Andre Mura will present and serves as a course advisor for the upcoming American Association for Justice (AAJ) two-day seminar on “Overcoming Obstructive Discovery.” The seminar, which will take place in Washington, DC, and is part of AAJ’s Discovery Masters Class series, is designed to cover critical areas of discovery in which plaintiff attorneys often struggle. Specific topics to be covered include:
• Dealing with deposition obstruction
• Crafting motions
• Exchanging information
• Keeping discovery focused on the case you are trying to develop
The presentations are designed to “go beyond the basics,” and really dig in on how practitioners navigate these discovery challenges through real-world examples. Andre is serving as course advisor along with Mark Kosieradzki, author of “30(B)(6): Deposing Corporations, Organizations & the Government, Depositions Obstruction: Breaking Through.” Other faculty members include Seth Cardeli, Camille Godwin, Carmaletta Henson, Paula Jossar, Annika Martin and Zachary Wool.
