Summary judgment is one of the most important weapons in a defense attorney’s arsenal against costly and risky trials. But, too many motions fall victim to common pitfalls, both procedural and substantive. If you want to win, you need to set the stage for your motion in discovery, draft proper and effective papers, and provide a framework for successful de novo review on appeal.

This distinguished panel will present guidance and practical tips on how to prepare the best summary judgment possible, from beginning to end.
