Brody to Speak at PLI’s Ethics for Discovery 2016

July 25, 2016

O’Melveny partner Steve Brody will speak at Practising Law Institute’s Ethics for Discovery 2016 at the New York Conference Center on July 25. Brody chairs the program and will participate on the panel designed to provide attorneys with an understanding of ethical duties arising in discovery, including obligations impacting investigations and litigation. Particular emphasis will be given to the new amendments to the federal discovery rules, including discussion of the rules in practice during the first seven months after their effective date, emerging issues for litigants, and the intersection of these issues with the ethical rules governing the practice of law.

Brody is an accomplished trial lawyer who handles a wide variety of complex, aggregated litigation, with a primary focus on mass torts, product liability, class actions, government investigations, and appeals. He is co-chair of O'Melveny's Product Liability and Mass Torts Practice and leads the practice’s Drug and Medical Device subgroup.
