This year’s annual favorite is designed to give lawyers of all levels the practical tools and skills to move a case from inception to trial. The program will provide associates and those new to the defense practice an in-depth preparatory course in this specialized field. Presented by skilled local attorneys and experienced mediators, this seminar series will provide training on how to open a new file; develop and effectively communicate a litigation strategy; and navigate written discovery and depositions. In addition, our panelists will review best practices for law and motion work and well as preparing a case for mediation and trial. Upon completion of the series, participants will have gained the skills necessary to defend a client from day one to trial.
