The firm hosted mock trial events in Frankfurt and Munich, Germany in December. As far as we are aware, these are the first U.S.-style jury trials conducted for a German audience in Germany. Both events were well-attended by lawyers from German companies and law firms. The events were an excellent opportunity to learn about U.S. jury trials, including jury service, jury selection, witness preparation and the role of the judge in jury trials. The firm’s founding partner, John B. Quinn, served as the moderator and judge, while firm partners Manisha M. Sheth and Steven Madison played the role of plaintiff’s and defense counsel, respectively.
