Philadelphia partner William M. McSwain discussed “Effectively Settling Cases With U.S. Magistrate Judges” on June 23, 2017, at a CLE presentation at Drinker Biddle. The Hon. Henry S. Perkin and the Hon. David R. Strawbridge, both magistrate judges from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, joined Bill for this conversation, hosted by the Federal Bar Association.
Panelists explored how attorneys can make the most out of settlement conferences with U.S. magistrate judges and, in doing so, assist clients in a more cost-effective manner. Discussion focused on the rules and practical considerations relating to settlement conference preparation and participation.
