    Depositions - Best Practices

    12 PM EST

    The fourth episode of our twelve part teleconference series on best practices for managing litigation cases focuses on Depositions.

    Depositions are an effective tool in the attorney’s arsenal to gather information to better counsel their client and prepare their case.  Additionally, they may provide the only opportunity to gather certain information from the opposing side.  As such, depositions can be a nerve wracking process for all parties involved - The questioning attorney has to prepare and make adjustments on the fly if they encounter answers they were not expecting, the defending attorney has to be on the lookout for troublesome questions and defend their witness, and the witness (especially if they have never testified before) is anxious and may be thinking about any other place they could be right then.  Although it is a stressful process for all involved, this stress can be reduced with the proper preparation. 

    This one hour panel discussion will provide various tips and tricks to approaching depositions so you can be better prepared for depositions regardless of which role you will play.  Topics will include:

    ·         Personally preparing for depositions,

    ·         Preparing witnesses for depositions,

    ·         Differences in Federal Rules and State Rules,

    ·         Best practices when taking depositions,

    ·         Defending depositions,

    ·         Best practices related to objections, and

    ·         Any specific questions or topics related to depositions that attendees would like to discuss.
