Program Summary

Attorneys can expect to gain insights into arranging an optimal performance for an executive’s examination at an arbitration, mediation, deposition, trial, or administrative proceeding. The course discusses ways to prepare with the executive before the proceeding to minimize damaging testimony on cross examination. There are also tips for ensuring the executive highlights important information on direct and redirect testimony, without the witness robotically repeating certain catch phrases or talking points.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Managing witness anxiety or anger
  • Mitigating problematic information
  • Allowing for the witness’ personality to emerge
  • Putting yourself in the best position to win
