In this episode of Uncivil Procedure, David Cohen—partner and chair of records and e-discovery at Reed Smith—discusses cooperation with the gang from Relativity: David Horrigan, Malinda Lee, Constantine Pappas, Danny Pelc, and Anna Siroonian. For lawyers, this a loaded subject to say the least.
Some important questions come to mind when it comes to cooperation:
- When is it in lawyers’—and their clients’—best interests to cooperate with opposing counsel, and when might it come back to bite them?
- Just how expensive can a pre-nuptial agreement between Jay-Z and Beyoncé be?
- What artistic collaboration promises to be music’s next smash hit?
The panelists also discuss what it means to be transparent or translucent with opposing counsel, the origin of David Horrigan’s distaste for kimono metaphors, and more.
