Jenner & Block Partner Craig C. Martin and Mr. Steven Kyono, Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary of Hewitt Associates, co-chaired The American Lawyer, The National Law Journal and Corporate Counsel Magazine’s 2nd Annual Litigation Summit, on October 5-6, 2010 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City.  The Summit brought together participants from some of the world’s largest and most recognizable companies to explore how general counsel and their outside advisors can employ state-of-the-art business tactics to minimize the costs associated with litigation, as well as how they can be pro-active in preventing litigation in the first place.  An international dimension was included in this year’s program, and current issues in Enterprise Risk Management were also addressed.

Conference faculty included Directors, Officers and General Counsel from such corporations as Burger King Corporation; John Bean Technologies; Chartis Insurance; CPR Institute; MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings, Inc.; MasterCard Worldwide; Nokia; Olin Corp.; Prudential; UBS Wealth Management Americas; and Viacom, Inc.

During the Summit, Jenner & Block Partner Timothy J. Chorvat spoke on a panel titled “Shareholder Litigation: Your Board, Your Company, Investor Relations and the Impact of the Outcome,” and Partner Richard F. Ziegler led a panel discussing “Ethics and Litigation.”
