Winning at the Gate: Practical Lessons for Stating or Attacking Claims in a Post-Twombly/Iqbal World

The Supreme Court's decisions in Twombly and Iqbal changed the standard for pleading a claim in federal court cases, but lawyers and courts continue to struggle in applying the plausibility standard. This OnDemand Webinar explores practical approaches to "winning at the gate," whether you are pleading or attacking a claim, particularly in the complex commercial litigation arena. This program will cover strategies for approaching the race and plausibility trigger points for the starting gate. This OnDemand Webinar also will cover how context, business realities and the economics of litigation can factor into whether the starting gate actually opens.
