Business and Commercial Litigation 2019 Edition

This practical reference shepherds attorneys through every phase of trying a business or commercial case.

This handbook is a guide through each stage of a business or commercial case. The chapters cover the steps of a case from beginning to end with techniques for pleadings and motions, jury selection, cross-examination, using expert witnesses, and opening and closing arguments. Discovery issues, including discovery in federal and state courts, written discovery, e-discovery, and document production and organization, are extensively covered. Other topics include mediation, arbitration, temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions, preparing for appeal, expert witnesses, and insurance. The handbook includes multiple forms, samples, checklists, and model clauses, including sample deposition questions, separate checklists for plaintiffs and defendants regarding preparing pleadings, charts for a simple and detailed litigation budget, temporary restraining orders with and without notice, and a protective order.
