No company wants to face a loss at trial.  Suddenly, the company confronts not only an adverse verdict, but urgent decisions, demoralized witnesses, climbing legal fees, and negative publicity. 
Following an adverse judgment, time is of the essence. The clock starts ticking immediately for post-trial briefs, including motions for judgment as a matter of law and motions for new trial.  Drafting a post-trial brief is a substantial undertaking that requires detailed study of the trial record, so it is critical to get the appellate team going right away in order to increase your chances of turning around a bad verdict and avoid waiver of arguments for appeal. 
In this installment of Seyfarth’s Trial Education Series, seasoned trial attorneys from our National Trial Team will provide tools, strategies, and best practices for crafting and delivering an effective post-trial brief.  In this webinar, we will cover:
  • Choosing a team for post-trial and appeal 
  • How to make your trial record work for you 
  • Best practices for motions for judgment as a matter of law and for new trial 
  • Selection and preservation of arguments for post-trial motions and appeal 
  • Strategies for obtaining remittitur of damages awards 
  • Opposing a petition for fees
