Discover what you can expect from cunning plaintiffs’ counsel.
Preparing the Executive for Depositions
Depositions are scary – even for top executives.
You’re sworn in under oath. Lawyers are peppering you with questions (often about things that happened months or years ago). You have no access to your computer or your assistant. And give the wrong answer, and it could doom careers – or cost your company millions of dollars.
Your lawyer will help you prepare for depositions – for several hundred dollars an hour. But advance planning can help minimize the time you spend with lawyers. That’s why The HR Specialist and Executive Leadership have teamed up to help you stay composed when you’re deposed, with Preparing the Executive for Depositions.
In this unique “role-playing” session, two of America’s top attorneys – veterans of countless depositions – act out a typical deposition. You’ll gain insight into the process… learn the pitfalls you MUST avoid… and discover what you can expect from cunning plaintiffs’ counsel.
