April 2023 Club Meeting - "A New Damages Model for an Uncertain World" & "Chat GPT for Litigators, Arbitrators, and Experts"

Thursday, April 20, 2023 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM

Event Location: Zoom & Baker & McKenzie

We will be joined by Mark Kantor, a retired partner of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy (now Milbank LLC), an international arbitrator in investment and commercial disputes, an Adjunct Professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, and the Editor-in-Chief of the online journal Transnational Dispute Management.  Mr. Kantor will discuss "A New Damages Model for an Uncertain World," positing that a model partly based on previously invested capital and rate of return may reduce uncertainties more than the widely used discounted cash flow method.


We will also be joined by David Cowen, a vice president in Charles River Associates' Forensic Services Practice, with over 25 years of digital forensics, information security and cyber incident response experience.  Mr. Cowen will lead a discussion on "Chat GPT for Litigators, Arbitrators, and Experts," addressing how professionals are making use of artificial intelligence to act as their paralegal, first year associate research assistant and contract technical writer.  Mr. Cowen will provide a demonstration of how to effectively use Chat GPT in your own work and the security considerations you should keep in mind when dealing with sensitive data.
