CHICAGO, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CHICAGO, IL (May 2017) – Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner of Clifford Law Offices, will be participating in a competition called "Shoot Out at the Barbary Coast Corral—The Masters of Closing Argument," featuring the best litigators in the country at American Bar Association's 2017 Section Annual Conference held on May 3-5, 2017.

The competition will include four of the nation's top trial lawyers, including Clifford and Daralyn Durie, founder of Durie Tangri, one of Silicon Valley's go-to boutiques, whose clients include Google, Genentech and Twitter. James Brosnahan, senior trial counsel of Morrison & Foerster's San Francisco office, who defended the "American Taliban" in the first post-9/11 terrorism prosecution and Bart Williams, co-chair of Proskauer Rose's Los Angeles litigation department, who has been described by the Chambers USA guide as "one of the smoothest trial lawyers you'll ever come across," will also be part of the competition.

According to the American Bar Association, "Each will present a closing argument for a fact pattern modeled on the high-profile Pao v. Kleiner Perkins trial, with $40,000 to be awarded to the winner's designated charity."

"Being able to be in a competition surrounded by such talented trial attorneys is an honor," said Clifford. "What makes this event more rewarding is that the winners will have money donated to their selected charity."

The 2017 Section Annual Conference will be held on May 3-5th, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in San Francisco, CA. Clifford's competition will be held on Friday, May 5th, 2017, at 10:25 a.m.12:00 p.m. To register for the event, click here
