Higgs & Johnson litigators, Tara Archer (Partner) and Audley Hanna (Associate) attended the annual International Bar Association (“IBA”) Litigation forum in Washington, DC; of which the firm was also a sponsor. They joined corporate counsel, managing partners, heads of various law firm departments and policymakers from all over the world through working sessions and social events.
This year’s conference highlighted many issues including the growing clash between privacy and information sharing rules in Europe and North America and their effect on litigation; litigating complex, high value technology disputes; and the latest opinions for the use of litigation as a dispute resolution mechanism in key Asian jurisdictions.
Mrs. Archer noted, “The sessions were thought-provoking and garnered much discussion especially with regard to the emerging issues surrounding technology and what it brings to the litigation process.”
Mrs. Archer and Mr. Hanna are Officers of various IBA Committees. Mrs. Archer has over eighteen (18) years of legal experience and she along with Mr. Hanna practice in the areas of commercial and civil litigation, law of insolvency, banking law, employment law and IP law.
