    Presented in three volumes, Pretrial, Trial and Special Problems and Appeals, this bestseller has been expanded and updated to include over 200 of the most useful articles from Litigation magazine. Packed with insights from top litigators, The Litigation Manual has been valued as much for its refreshing style as its practical, how-to approach. This new edition brings you up to date on:

    • tools for reducing discovery and litigation costs;
    • choosing, preparing, and controlling both expert and lay witnesses;
    • weighing advantages and disadvantages of new alternative dispute resolution options; and
    • effective strategies for appellate courts, regulatory agencies, and grand juries.

    Whether you are a novice or experienced litigator, you will find each volume filled with innovative ideas and step-by-step advice you will put to use immediately in your practice. This new edition will help you identify:

    • ethically-sound and risk-free techniques for changing forums or judges;
    • ways to defend against consequences of violating a local rule;
    • how to avoid common mistakes in discovery or during trial;
    • practical considerations when litigating an injunction proceeding;
