Depositions are one of the most crucial and challenging stages of litigation. They permit a skilled examiner to fill in critical gaps in the documentary record, elicit vital judicial admissions that can shape the outcome of dispositive motions and trials, and provide keen insights into how witnesses will likely react to the crucible of cross-examination at trial and how such witnesses will be perceived by others, principally the jury or a judge in a bench trial. In many cases, depositions will make or break a case. Whether you are a junior associate taking your first deposition or a seasoned litigator, come join our panel of skilled and experienced and diverse litigators for a discussion of strategies and techniques for maximizing your effectiveness with depositions. Part I of this three-part series will focus on the strategies and techniques for preparing to take and defend depositions, including unique issues that arise in virtual depositions.
