It will cover all aspects of the client relationship from your initial meeting with a potential client to the conclusion of your representation of a client. While the presenters will share examples and experiences from their litigation practices, the tips and advice given should be helpful regardless of what practice area you are in.
Client Intake (process, scope of representation, expectations, fees/expenses);
Client Communication Throughout The Matter;
Client Preparation (including for discovery answers, depositions, trial);
