2024 Transportation Practice Group Regional Seminar

Hawkins Parnell & Young partners David Wilson and Martin Levinson are speaking at ALFA International's Transportation Practice Group Regional Seminar. They will present the topic, "Recognizing and Combatting 'Anchoring' Tactics Used with Juries at Trial." 

This discussion will focus on ‘anchoring’ techniques used by plaintiffs at trial to inflate noneconomic damages. Why is this tactic effective and why is it allowed independent of the strength of the actual evidence in the case? More importantly, how can defendants effectively rebut and “cast away” plaintiffs anchor?
