On March 27, Partners Edwin F. McPherson and Tracy B. Rane will present the panel “Settlement Demands – When is a Demand Letter Just a Bluff” at the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s Inn of Court.

The panel will discuss the litigation privilege and its application to pre-litigation demand letters, focusing on and contrasting Malin v. Singer and Dickinson v. Cosby.  The program will also discuss the post Dickinson world of having to prove that a demand letter is a legitimate (i.e., protected) versus a hollow (i.e., unprotected) threat of litigation without violating the attorney/client privilege, and whether litigation must actually be filed in order to obtain protection under the litigation privilege.

When: March 27, 2018 – 6:00 PM

Where: Westside Tavern – 10850 W Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90064
