The WPTLA Education Committee is proud to host another 3-credit CLE presentation with a nationally recognized presenter this year at the Omni William Penn Hotel. Similar to last year’s program with Philip Miller, Esquire, co-author of Advanced Deposition Strategy and Practice, the WPTLA is honored to have Mark Kosieradzki, Esquire, present a 3-hour CLE focused on the use of 30(b)(6) depositions.

Mark Kosieradzki is an expert on 30(b)(6) depositions and teaches his techniques at seminars across the country. Mr. Kosieradzki is nationally renowned for his knowledge of 30(b)(6) deposition practice and has released a DVD entitled “Deposing the Corporate Representative: 30(b)(6) Depositions.” This DVD will be provided to all attendees at the CLE as part of the price of admission to the program.

For those who attended last year’s presentation with Mr. Miller, many of Mr. Kosieradzki’s 30(b)(6) corporate representative practices were highlighted during the last hour of Mr. Miller’s presentation. Mr. Miller focused on the use of 30(b)(6) depositions in civil litigation to extract necessary information specific to the central issues of a case, along with using 30(b)(6) depositions to obtain critical admissions from defendants.

Mr. Kosieradzki’s upcoming CLE is a must see for WPTLA members as the use of the Corporate Representative 30(b)(6) Deposition is the most underutilized and misunderstood discovery weapon available to lawyers involved in cases with corporations as defendants. Mr. Kosieradzki will teach our members mastery of the 30(b)(6) concepts and use of 30(b)(6) depositions in all aspects of our practice. These teachings will provide a wealth of knowledge to our members and, similar to the feedback provided by WPTLA members following Mr. Miller’s presentation last year, will provide insight and information our members will find invaluable to their practices.

The cost will be $200.00 and will include a copy of Mr. Kozieradski’s DVD. The presentation will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude at noon on Friday, October 9, 2015 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh. Attendance for last year’s presentation with Philip Miller, Esquire, was excellent. The WPTLA is hopeful that more members of our organization will turn out for Mr. Kosieradzki’s presentation this year.

Thank you to all of our members for your continued attendance at our CLE programs and for your support of the education programs. If you have any questions or concerns about this presentation, or if you have any suggestions for future presenters and/or presentations, please do not hesitate to contact Max Petrunya by e-mail at or by phone at (412) 281-7229.

I look forward to seeing all of you at Mr. Kosieradzki’s presentation on October 9, 2015.
