Good Facts Enable Better Decisions (CLE Certified!)
Understanding litigation cost and risk are central to determining case strategy and tactics, yet very few companies have good facts on cost and culpability at pivotal decision points. Without reliable, early information to work from, in-house counsel has less control over choices made by outside counsel, is ill-equipped to advise their internal business clients on outcomes, and will spend too much on litigation. This panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by assessing the corpus of potentially relevant information and projected litigation costs earlier and often throughout the case lifecycle. The panel will explore:
The key decision points impacted by cost and culpability and their risks and costs
How to systematically harness good facts to drive better decisions on scope, settlement, and strategy
The challenges in early evidence assessment – accessing and leveraging the information to improve outcomes
The importance of assessing cost early and often over the case lifecycle
Analyzing matter and cost patterns to systemically optimize the process and reduce risk
