Best Practices for Managing Multi-Forum Litigation

Managing and coordinating the defense of many cases pending in multiple jurisdictions presents unique challenges and is critical to preventing inefficiency, confusion, and in some instances sheer volume from overwhelming the merits of the litigation. Without knowing the kinds of practical problems that multi-forum litigation can present and how to handle them, litigators and their clients may face soaring costs, duplication, inefficiency, and protracted litigation, and miss their best opportunities for favorable resolution. This OnDemand Webinar will help you avoid some of the common pitfalls of managing multi-forum litigation and provide some of the best practices for positioning the litigation for success.
