Alabama Discovery Disputes: How to Win the Fight for Essential Information
Live Webinar Wednesday, April 26, 2017
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Central
You've filed a suit for your client or have agreed to represent someone who has been sued. After gathering facts from your client, what’s next? It's time to see what evidence and witnesses your opponent has. You can increase your odds of winning your case by conducting thorough discovery – whether through interrogatories, requests for documents, or depositions. The more thorough you are, the better prepared you will be for trial.
But obtaining discovery is not easy, and conflicts arise. You must be prepared to resolve discovery disputes, hopefully through cooperation with your opponent, but if not, to file an appropriate motion to obtain relevant information.
But judges do not like petty discovery motions. And discovery can be expensive.
Join your Alabama colleagues for a 60-minute CLE learning event on key techniques for mastering this essential skill. Your presenter will discuss best practices to resolve your discovery disputes with opposing counsel and explain when it is necessary to have your dispute resolved by the judge.
- Preparing and winning discovery motions
