OBA Civil Litigation PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Being the Moving Party or the Respondent on any motion can be an intense process with tight timelines, high client expectations and uncertain outcomes. These can be further amplified when you are dealing with difficult or unreasonable opposing counsel and/or self-represented litigants. It is critical for counsel to maintain the highest degree of professionalism, while still providing the best possible level of representation for their clients during the preparation and appearance for a motion.

Join this expert faculty to hear some of the key professionalism tips as well as potential pitfalls to avoid when you are preparing for a motion. Whether it is dealing with the last minute piece of case law or unreasonable actions by the opposing party, this discussion will ensure that you can confidently respond while representing your client and protecting your professional reputation.
