Countering Litigation Gamesmanship
Presented by the ISBA General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section
Co-Sponsored by the ISBA Federal Civil Practice Section and the ISBA Young Lawyers Division
This full-day seminar offers practical advice on how to avoid and respond to annoying, destructive, and time-consuming “gamesmanship” tactics employed by some attorneys in litigation. The speakers address all phases of the litigation process and respond to attendee’s questions throughout the seminar. Topics include: new client considerations, building a positive relationship with opposing counsel, preventing motions to dismiss, knowing when a sanctions motions is the right solution, responding to empty discovery objections, approaching settlements calmly, dealing with serial objectors, addressing unprofessional conduct, and much more! The program is designed for all attorneys who conduct civil litigation in state and federal courts, and is appropriate for practitioners with all levels of experience.
All ISBA member registrants are encouraged to participate in a special online learning community, established just for this CLE program, to discuss specific gamesmanship situations with faculty and other community members! Unlike other CLE seminars, this program offers attendees the unique opportunity to ask questions, swap stories, and generate discussion before and after the program! All ISBA member registrants will receive instructions to access the online discussion forum, which will open September 7th and remain accessible until October 17th. Not an ISBA member?
