As an in-house lawyer managing litigation, rarely are the stakes as high as when your company is about to go to trial. Seyfarth’s National Trial Team has created a five-part series with strategies and best practices to help you, as in-house counsel, ensure that your company and internal clients are prepared for trial.

In this installment in the Seyfarth Trial Series, seasoned trial lawyers and experienced in-house counsel will provide a step-by-step guide to prepare in-house counsel for trial. Specifically, our presenters will address:

  • Getting the attention of senior management so company personnel critical to the trial are given the requisite time to prepare and testify
     
  • Identifying and managing trial risks, including making strategic and tactical decisions during trial
     
  • Best practices to facilitate information flow to trial counsel
     
  • Whether to conduct a mock jury or focus group
     
  • Courtroom decorum
