Shareholder Blythe E. Lovinger will present “Ethical Dilemmas Arising with Depositions” at Practising Law Institute’s 2017 Fundamentals of Taking and Defending Depositions Conference on March 10, 2017 in New York. This interactive program provides junior through mid-level attorneys with an overview of the applicable Federal and New York State Rules of Civil Procedure, and continues with strategic practice tips to use when taking and defending depositions, preparing witnesses and defending the depositions.

Ms. Lovinger and her fellow presenters will guide a discussion on important ethical issues that may arise during depositions, including: the obligations a lawyer has when clients do not tell the truth; ways to handle tricky or abusive behavior during depositions; issues arising with attorneys who implant memories or instill doubt about recollections in witnesses during preparation; coaching or talking with witnesses during depositions; limits on formal discovery from potential witnesses before deposition; and using social media to collect information about deponents.
