Clausen Miller Appellate Practice Group Co-Chair Melinda Kollross will be moderating the DRI Appellate Practice Committee CLE panel discussion “Perspectives on the Appellate Practitioner’s Role at Trial and On Appeal: A View From the Plaintiff, the Defense and the Court” at the DRI Annual Meeting being held in Chicago October 4-8, 2017. The panel discussion will take place on October 4, 2017 from 2:00 to 3:00pm and will feature Mike Rathsack, the most prominent Illinois plaintiff’s appellate attorney presenting the Plaintiff view and Clausen Miller Appellate senior counsel Paul Esposito, one of the most frequently retained trial monitoring and appellate practitioners, providing the Defense perspective. Illinois Supreme Court Justice Rita Garman will present the Court’s perspective. This will be a unique opportunity to hear from all sides about the value of retaining an appellate specialist at trial and on appeal, to network with industry leaders, and to earn CLE credit as well.
