What you will learn:

Whether you are a newer attorney with little litigation experience yet OR you are a seasoned attorney with years of trial experience ‘under the belt,’ attending this seminar will provide you with the insights of our authoritative speaker! Don’t miss this opportunity.

Our speaker, Judge Sean J. McLaughlin (Ret.) will provide a unique perspective, based on his experience as a Federal Court Judge, private practitioner, and General Counsel for The Erie Insurance Group, as to how a client’s interests can be most effectively advanced throughout the litigation process.

Our Authoritative Speaker: 
The Honorable Sean J. McLaughlin
began his career as a Federal Court law clerk and thereafter spent 13 years at Knox Law, where he focused his practice in civil litigation. In 1994, he was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, where he served from 1994 through 2013, completing his tenure as Chief Judge. During his time on the bench, he served as Chair of the District Court’s Court Governance Committee, the Court’s Long-Range Planning Committee, and the Magistrate Judges Committee. In 2012, he was appointed by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. to serve on the United States Judicial Conference Committee on Court Administration and Case Management.

Subsequent to his tenure on the court, Judge McLaughlin served as general counsel of The Erie Insurance Group, a Fortune 500 company, for over 5 years. In January of 2019, he returned to Knox Law, where he focuses his practice exclusively on alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration and early neutral evaluation in both federal and state courts.
