Depositions are one of the most crucial (and fun) stages of litigation. They clarify and illuminate the facts of your – and your adversary’s – case in a way that the documents alone – no matter how much you pore over them – simply cannot. They bring a case to life by putting faces to names. They give you a sneak peek into what a trial might look like. Handled well, they can also lead to settlement, solidify your grounds for summary judgment, and lock opponents into important positions for trial. How depositions are prepared for, taken, and defended, however, has changed drastically as a result of the global pandemic, and may never fully be the same. Whether you are a first-year litigation associate or a senior partner, join our panel of skilled and experienced litigators for a discussion of strategies and techniques for maximizing your effectiveness at preparing for, taking, and defending depositions – whether in person or remotely.
