Getting the Most Out of Deposition Defense


Andrew Kratenstein wrote this bylined article on how too many lawyers fail to get maximum advantage from questioning their corporate clients in deposition. Calling such a conservative approach “short-sighted,” Mr. Kratenstein wrote that “each deposition is an opportunity to create a record that will help win your case. Accordingly, lawyers defending depositions should take that opportunity to ask their own witness a few focused questions at the end of the deposition that are designed to advance your client’s case.”
