Howard Cooper a panelist at forum on amendments to federal civil court rules

Howard M. Cooper participated as a panelist as part of a three-hour program examining the impact of new amendments to federal court procedural rules.

The event addressed significant changes to federal discovery and case management practices created by December 2015 amendments designed to make discovery more targeted, less expensive, and more effective. Panelists explored practical discovery implications and best practices for case management under the amended rules.

The May 13, 2016, program at the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse in Boston is part of an unprecedented 18-city series of dialogues led by national thought leaders, federal judges, and leading practitioners in each city. In addition to Mr. Cooper, the Boston event featured numerous federal judges based in Massachusetts and other practitioners.

Mr. Cooper has over three decades of extensive trial practice in federal courts. He regularly represents clients in major civil cases involving corporate law, closely-held businesses, real estate, partnerships, trade secrets, and franchise litigation.
