Your Litigator is Failing You and You Don’t Even Know It

Just because very few cases end up going to trial doesn't mean you don't need to prepare for trial in every case. Successfully defending claims in litigation requires your company to tell a compelling story to the judge and jury, and trial lawyers are highly skilled at developing and telling those stories. This course provides valuable insights and advice for in-house counsel selecting outside litigators and managing litigation from commencement through to settlement or trial.

Chris has multi-million dollar verdicts in trade secret, patent, trademark, and breach-of-contract cases. He also has successfully defended clients in jury trials in trade dress, defamation, trade secret, and contract disputes. Chris’s trial work has won plaudits from judges on his cases, with one long-time federal judge declaring after a recent jury trial that “[i]n 40 years, that was one of the best closing arguments I have ever seen.” Likewise, after a defamation trial in state court, the experienced judge and former prosecutor said Chris’s cross-examination of the plaintiff “was the most riveting examination I have ever seen in any trial.” Chris is a frequent faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and he has given his popular presentations on persuasion to many of the largest, most-prestigious law firms in the country, including O’Melveny, Jones Day, Munger Tolles, and others.
