To Settle or Not to Settle: Strategy and Tactics for Litigators
A key decision in the litigation process is when to settle and when to proceed to trial. As a lawyer, you need to know how to assess your client’s case and provide strategic advice on costs, timing and prospects. This interactive session will use a case study to examine settlement considerations at various stages of a case from both the plaintiff and defendant perspectives.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Apply techniques for effective client communication throughout the settlement process
- Develop strategies for dealing with opposing counsel
- Identify weaknesses in your case and know how to address them
- Understand the ethical considerations that you should consider when pursuing a settlement
This is the 4th session of the Essential Skills for Litigators webinar series.
