Rome, Italy - May 9, 2013

Cathleen’s presentation was on day three as part of the panel “Counsel Beware: Laws Do Extend beyond Borders - Investigations, Discovery and Privilege.”  She shared the presenter’s table with a U.S. lawyer based in France representing U.S. companies, an English lawyer in London working in-house for a U.S. company, and an employee-side English lawyer in England.  It was a diverse group but the very experienced moderator, Gary Siniscalco, expertly weaved it all together. 
 
Cathleen covered the basic structure of the Global Workers Defender Network and how we assist U.S. lawyers who represent low-wage workers that have left the United States.  Additionally, she covered more technical aspects of conducting depositions overseas as U.S. style “discovery” is particularly unique to our legal system.  
 
Some lawyers were interested in financially supporting the work, some needed our services for their clients abroad, and others asked to access our litigation support materials.  The ABA is a unique space where not many non-profits roam, and we were honored to be part of this event.
