This seminar studies the strategies of complex commercial litigation, focusing on case development in the pretrial period. It will address strategies and approaches to pleadings, jurisdiction, motions, pretrial discovery and remedies (e.g., preliminary injunctions, damages) in the context of difficult and unclear legal issues. Hardball litigation techniques and ethical considerations will be considered as well as the use of litigation to achieve business goals. Actual litigated cases will be dissected and papers in the form of briefs and memoranda will be written on each. Since 90% of commercial cases settle before trial, this seminar will be a real life presentation of the commercial litigation process.
