Scott Kreamer Elevated to President-Elect of Lawyers for Civil Justice

Scott Kreamer, Managing Member of Baker Sterchi, was elevated to President-Elect of Lawyers for Civil Justice (LCJ) during the recent Spring Membership Meeting held in Washington, D.C.

LCJ, a coalition of defense bar organizations, law firms and corporations, focuses on initiatives such as enhancing multi-district litigation reforms, establishing expert evidence standards, allocating discovery costs effectively, modernizing privilege log requirements and safeguarding the right to file documents under seal.

Recently, LCJ advocated for the amendment of Federal Rule of Evidence 702, governing expert testimony in federal courts. The resulting amendment, effective December 1, 2023, introduced significant changes aimed at enhancing the standards for the admissibility of expert testimony. Specifically, the amendment emphasizes that expert testimony may only be admitted if the proponent demonstrates to the court that the proffered testimony is more likely than not to meet the admissibility requirements set forth in the rule.

Kreamer’s practice focuses on commercial, construction, financial services, insurance and product liability matters. In addition to his role with the LCJ, he is an active member of the Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel (FDCC) and DRI, having previously served as chairman of the board and president for FDCC, and as a member of the Board of Directors for DRI. He is also a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, having tried more than 30 cases in state and federal courts.
