About the Process
Case Strategy Summit
We often begin work on significant matters with a daylong session to critically examine how case issues, witness testimony, and evidence will resonate with the jury, judge and/or arbitration tribunal. Using a mindmeld process that encourages the free exchange of ideas, we evaluate potential case themes, counterintuitive approaches, and obstacles to a successful outcome. The result of this session is a clearly defined strategy and roadmap for enhancing the persuasiveness of the case presentation.
Following the case strategy summit, we routinely remain involved with the trial team throughout the life of the case. We provide consultation on a wide variety of strategy issues, including the order and scope of witness testimony, assistance with the development of opening statements and demonstrative exhibits, decisions about the structure of the verdict form, profiles of dangerous and favorable jurors, and the pros and cons of a supplemental juror questionnaire.
