Pleadings can secure your litigation strategy or—if you fail to consider all possible claims, parties, and relief sought—undermine it.  One simple missed step could lead to a successful summary judgement claim against your client. Or your "win" might not be seen in the same light by a client who thereafter faces a massive tax liability. It's important to imagine the desired result and all the paths that could lead to it at the drafting stage. Our presenters help you to do this, so you can create well-thought-out, clearly worded pleadings with strategic rationale. Also, they analyze the effects of the new world of artificial intelligence, how it's impacting pleadings, and what it means for you.
