Commercial Litigation 101

Commercial Litigation 101
This webinar will provide a basic overview of legal procedure regularly utilized by commercial litigators.  The practice area of commercial litigation encompasses many different substantive areas of law but generally includes representation of businesses and businesspeople.  There are certain strategic decisions that commercial litigators regularly need to make and tools that they routinely use throughout the litigation process.  This includes venue and removal to federal court, enforcement of arbitration clauses, preservation of evidence and electronically stored information, taking and defending corporate witness depositions, responding to subpoenas, and protecting confidentiality and privilege.  Experienced commercial litigators Maryan Alexander and Sarah Elizabeth Spencer will cover these protocols and offer some tips for best practices.  The presentation is geared toward young lawyers who are starting their commercial litigation journey and experienced litigators who want a refresher.

The registration rate is $75 for DRI members and $150 for non-members.
