On Tuesday, June 7th at 11:00 AM Pacific/2:00 PM Eastern, Sedgwick’s Appellate Task Force will present its webinar “Adding an Appellate Specialist to the Trial Team: The Sooner the Better.” Highlights of the hour-long CLE presentation include:

  • The Appellate Specialist’s Role Before Trial — preparing the motions and briefs which the appeal will often turn on, such as the rapidly evolving area of jurisdictional challenges, dispositive motions, the high-stakes battle over class certification and important evidentiary battles.
  • During Trial and Afterward — protecting the record while the trial team focuses on the factual proof, preventing waiver by ensuring that objections and offers of proof are made, evidence is definitively ruled on, and all important bench conferences are transcribed.
  • “The Big Picture” — managing the client’s appellate strategy, anticipating what the law may soon become, grooming test cases, moving the law through amicus briefs, using appellate mediation to resolve cases more quickly, and when all else fails, cultivating conflict to make Supreme Court review more likely.
