Join us for an insightful discussion providing tips and techniques for conducting successful depositions, with an emphasis on how to handle difficult opposing counsel, uncooperative witnesses, and dealing with diversity and inclusion issues, especially toward women, minorities and inexperienced attorneys.
While state and federal Task Forces have found gender bias against female attorneys, litigants and court employees still occurring inside their courtroom, it appears that the problem is even more pervasive outside the courtroom at depositions and during negotiations.
Our expert panel will highlight the issues. as well as provide helpful recommendations for how to establish and maintain control of the deposition process.
