Martin explained the purpose of the conference in a press release.
“By some estimates, U.S. companies spend in excess of $20 billion yearly on litigation,” Martin said. “The goal of the Litigation Summit is to bring in-house counsel, outside counsel and litigation support professionals together to look at litigation as a strategic business issue, share best practices and help sharpen our collective skills.”
