Schnader's Keith E. Whitson and Nancy Winkelman attended the Defense Research Institute’s 10th Annual Appellate Advocacy Seminar on June 21-22, 2012 in Cambridge, MA. Experienced appellate practitioners, in-house counsel and occasional appellate advocates alike benefited from a distinguished faculty of judges, in-house counsel and leading practitioners providing valuable instruction and insight on effective advocacy, strategies and business tactics. The live oral argument and writing sessions provided concrete examples of what went well and what went poorly in a high-level appeal that featured some of the best appellate practitioners in the country. Other speakers addressed broad, important topics, such as appeals from the in-house perspective and building an appellate practice, as well as specific issues, such as interacting effectively with the government and strategies for addressing emerging appellate issues in e-discovery and social media.
