What Every Business Person Needs to Know About Being Deposed

A primer on what to expect, how to prepare and the best ways to respond during your first deposition

January 28, 2013

Being deposed can feel like entering uncharted territory. Unlike court testimony— which at least gets dramatic representation in movies and on television—depositions are something in which few people have actually participated. Knowing what to expect, how to prepare and the best ways to give direct, truthful answers will make any deponent feel more comfortable and more capable of participating fully and meaningfully.
