Leveraging the Legal Issues Specialist at Trial

As the risks of civil jury trials continue to increase and civil trial practice continues to become a specialty area, trial teams increasingly deploy legal issues specialists. Legal issues specialists leverage legal argument to help win at trial while also positioning the case for a possible appeal. 

Two legal issues specialists (Val Leppert and Scott Edson) and a trial lawyer (Katy Lehman) will speak from their differing perspectives (gained from collectively trying more than 60 cases) on the importance of legal issues specialists and how to best deploy them in the frenetic environment of the modern jury trial. Learn how trial lawyers and legal issues specialists work together to advance the client’s interests on all fronts.
