New York, NY

In this CLE with the New York City Bar, Rayne Kessler delivered a presentation titled, "Deposition Strategies & Techniques: Honing Your Skills and Finding Your Style."

Depositions are one of the most crucial (and fun) stages of litigation. They clarify and illuminate the facts of your – and your adversary’s – case in a way that the documents alone – no matter how much you pore over them – simply cannot. They bring a case to life by putting faces to names. They give you a sneak peek into what a trial might look like. Handled well, they can also lead to settlement, solidify your grounds for summary judgment, and lock opponents into important positions for trial. Whether you are a first-year litigation associate or a senior partner, come join our panel of skilled and experienced litigators for a discussion of strategies and techniques for maximizing your effectiveness at preparing for, taking, and defending depositions.
