Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller shareholder Michele D. Hangley recently served as a panelist and Regional Co-Chair for the ABA Section of Litigation’s “Roadshow 2.0 – Precision Advocacy: Reinventing Motion Practice to Win” event in Philadelphia. Building on the momentum of last year’s Section of Litigation Roadshow on the 2015 Federal Rules Amendments, this year’s program, which is being held in 12 cities across the country, addresses how to promote efficiency and improve the chances for success in motion practice. More than 200 attorneys and judges attended the Philadelphia event, held at the James A. Byrne U.S. Courthouse in Philadelphia.

Moderated by the Hon. Jeremy Fogel, Director of the Federal Judicial Center, the Philadelphia Roadshow event focused on helping attorneys develop stronger and more successful motions. Discussion centered on new methods to upgrade motion practice, make motions and oppositions more effective, save time and reduce expense, and enhance credibility, all leading to better outcomes for clients. Hangley, other prominent litigators, and United States District Court judges from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey served as panelists at the event, analyzing problems with current practice and offering new, better, and cutting edge approaches for resolving interlocutory disputes, including how to:

  • Employ novel informal processes to narrow disputes or obviate having to file a motion
  • Streamline motions to make them more efficient and powerful
  • Focus the judge’s attention on what really matters
  • Obtain faster decisions and better results

An active member of the ABA Section of Litigation, Hangley served as National Co-Chair of the Section’s 2016 Roadshow entitled “Hello ‘Proportionality,’ Goodbye ‘Reasonably Calculated’: Reinventing Case Management and Discovery Under the 2015 Civil Rules Amendments,” which also visited cities across the country.
