Have you ever had a call from in-house counsel where they asked, "Why have the fees incurred to date exceeded the budget you gave me?" Or, did the in-house lawyer ask, why you felt it was necessary to perform certain research tasks? Have you ever wondered what in-house counsel thinks about how to best get the client ready for trial? These questions and more will be answered during this ninety (90) minute webinar.

This session will cover best practices in case management for construction lawyers, with a specific focus on (1) preparing accurate litigation budgets; (2) economically and efficiently managing discovery; and (3) best practices in preparing for trial. Attendees of this session will learn about and be able to:

  1. Prepare litigation budgets that reflect the necessary steps to achieve the client’s desired goals.
  2. Manage the case (including discovery) more efficiently to conform to the established budget, or explain to in-house counsel, in advance, the reasons for any non-conformance with the budget.
  3. Plan and coordinate trial strategies and steps with in-house counsel to more effectively prepare for trial.
