Our May Toolbox Talk Series was great last month. David Ponte and Joe Wallwork from Nautilus discussed discovery tips in Delay Claims. They provided the attached listing of documents (shown below) and explained the most important documents to obtain to evaluate delays.
In addition to the documents, they explained how experts can be very helpful in attending and preparing for other expert depositions. Thanks David and Joe for leading that discussion.
Our next TTS is scheduled at its regular time (4th Thursday at noon eastern -- June 24th). Be on the lookout for the registration email on that program. If you have a TTS topic or would like to contribute to the planning of these programs, please reach out.
In addition to our TTS, Division 1 and the Forum has some great events coming up in June including:

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend! In New England we had weather in the 40s, freezing rain, 50 MPH wind gusts, and very little sun. But, we fought through the nasty conditions and made the best of it in our winter clothes (even fishing)! Below is a photo of my kids fishing on Cape Cod (we caught a bunch of Sea Robins -- weird fish).
