What Litigators Need to Know About E-Contacts and Personal Jurisdiction- Understanding the Latest Legal Developments & How they Impact Your Clients
ExecSense, June 2010, Minutes: 60
What Litigators Need to Know About E-Contacts and Personal Jurisdiction is a time efficient way to be up-to-date on one of the most cutting-edge procedural issues in civil litigation - what type and amount of “e-contacts” (e-mails, web sites, text-messaging, cloud computing, social networking sites, etc.) are sufficient to establish personal jurisdiction over a defendant whose only contact with the jurisdiction is through those e-contacts. Take the 60 minutes to view this webinar (on your computer, mobile phone, iPod or printed out) to be in-the-know on how personal jurisdiction requirements are adapting to the Internet age, learn about the latest legal developments in this evolving area, and understand how you should be advising your litigation clients accordingly.
Upon ordering, ExecSense will email you a link to download the webinar files for viewing on your computer, mobile phone, iPod, iPad, Kindle or printed out. The downloaded files will include the PowerPoint presentation, audio narration and jpeg images of the slides (for watching on your mobile media device). Take advantage of your next commute, flight, business trip, lunch, or free hour in your schedule to view this webinar.
The webinar is led by an expert on personal jurisdiction and e-contacts, Edward Rippey (Partner, Covington & Burling LLP), and focuses on:

- Perspective on the impact of these recent legal developments on when future courts will exercise jurisdiction over defendants in different e-contacts scenarios (from, on one side of the spectrum, defendants who sent e-mails or solicited business through their web site from customers in a particular jurisdiction to, on the other side of the spectrum, defendants who uploaded documents to a virtual document room which were downloaded by a company in the jurisdiction at issue or defendants who host a free social networking site visited by users from a particular jurisdiction), and how you should be advising your litigation clients as a result
- The 10 questions most asked by litigators and their clients about what e-contacts are sufficient to establish personal jurisdiction and the impact on their litigation strategy
- Case studies of what other litigators are doing for their clients based on these recent legal developments involving personal jurisdiction and e-contacts, and important lessons learned
