A Professional End to the Year


Several of our attorneys are presenting on professionalism as part of the New Orleans Bar Association’s end-of-year Procrastinators’ Programs offered until December 28, 2018.

In light of his involvement with the Taxotere multidistrict litigation and his status as co-liaison counsel for the Taxotere multidistrict litigation, Palmer Lambert was selected to moderate a panel discussion titled “Lessons Learned: A Young Lawyer’s Perspective on Professionalism in Drug and Device Litigation,” which took place on December 11, 2018. Mr. Lambert also participated later that week on December 13, 2018, as a member of a panel on managing complex litigation, alongside the Honorable Patrick J. Hanna of the Western District of Louisiana and Celeste Coco-Ewing.

Coming up on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, Mr. Irving Warshauer is slated to speak on a panel at 10:10 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. with the Honorable Rachael D. Johnson of Orleans Parish Civil District Court and Peter E. Sperling, titled “Professionalism in Trial Practice–Views from the Bench and Bar.” The panel will address topics in professionalism, such as how to properly communicate through brief-writing, letters, and emails, appropriate colloquy between counsel during depositions and in the courtroom, and the importance of having mentors.

Mr. Gerald Meunier will follow with a presentation on Thursday, December 20, 2018, from 10:10 a.m. to 11:10 a.m., titled “Maintaining Professionalism in High-Stakes Litigation: How to Zealously Represent Your Client Without Risking Your Reputation.” He will be accompanied by the Honorable Kurt D. Engelhardt of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and Andrea Price.

All presentations for the New Orleans Bar Association’s Procrastinators’ Programs will be held on the 11th Floor of the Pan American Life Building located at 601 Poydras Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130. For more details about the Procrastinators’ Programs, click here.
