Synopsis

Navigating litigation can be a minefield and your charted course may not prove smooth sailing.

Following the filing of pleadings, there are many issues, options and consequences – and whether to take certain steps requires an assessment of the big picture including risk, delay, cost and ultimate benefit to your client.

To that end, litigators should also be mindful of achieving the aim of legal and commercial efficiency. Against the context of a common case scenario, this seminar will explore a range of potential steps and pitfalls along the way to a hearing and offer insights and advice.

Lessons

  • Reinforce your understanding of the range of effective procedural steps which might be available in a proceeding.
  • Evaluate the implications, both positive and negative, of elections made during the course of litigation.
  • Enhance your knowledge of how to manage and respond to interlocutory steps.
  • Develop your skills at assessing the nature of the evidence required to prove your case or defence.
  • Improve your efficiency through making better use of the tools available to help you along the way to settlement or trial, including how to establish an effective working relationship with opposing counsel and a framework for resolving the case or critical issues.

Who should attend?

Civil and commercial litigators at junior to intermediate level and those more senior seeking a refresher. General practitioners who do some litigation work will also benefit from attending.
