Description: With the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions lifting, has the surge in the accessibility and use of virtual platforms affected the legal standard for providing witness testimony? We discuss whether the global pandemic has meaningfully changed the practical and logistical considerations for appearing and testifying. C-suite executive testimony provides a compelling study on how virtual mediums—though commonplace—ultimately cannot supplant substantive legal standards of relevance and undue burden. Join us to discuss how C-suite executives highlight the changing nature of virtual testimony, including perceived ease and accessibility.
Sean J. Coughlin forges success through collaboration. His practice focuses on representing financial institutions and their employees in FINRA arbitrations and before regulatory agencies. He tries multi-million dollar cases, and has appeared on behalf of clients in New York State Court, the CFTC, and in more than 100 arbitrations. For Sean, the key to being a skilled trial lawyer is getting to know his clients and understanding their needs.
Building rock solid relationships has always been critical to Sean’s practice. Before joining the firm, Sean was an Executive Director and Supervising Attorney at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, where he valued the expertise of outside counsel for complex matters. Prior to that, he was a Managing Director and in-house counsel at Citigroup Global Markets Inc./Smith Barney, where he tried multi-million dollar arbitrations and managed outside counsel. With experience from so many angles of securities law, Sean navigates clients through the ever evolving world of securities litigation.
Sean lectures on topics relating to the financial services industry. He has addressed audiences at the American Conference Institute, students at Pace University’s New Directions Program, the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, and presented presentations to his clients on regulatory reporting requirements.
Jacqueline Meyers is an associate in the firm’s Securities Litigation practice group. An alumna of the Bressler summer associate program, Jacqueline joined the firm upon receiving her J.D. from Vanderbilt University Law School.
While at Vanderbilt Law, Jacqueline served as senior managing editor of the Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law. Jacqueline was also a member of Vanderbilt’s Civil Practice Clinic, where she advocated on behalf of students with disabilities in the public school system.
Jacqueline received her B.A. in Political Science and Art History, summa cum laude from Boston University. Prior to law school, Jacqueline was a member of Teach for America in Newark, New Jersey.
