Pretrial Practice 2024

Pretrial practice in federal civil litigation continues to change. As fewer civil cases are tried, the staples of pretrial practice — pleadings, motions to dismiss, discovery, Daubert motions, summary judgment, and settlement — have replaced trials as the focus of litigation. What does the changing nature of pretrial practice in litigation mean for your practice? Join a faculty of experienced plaintiffs' and defense attorneys, inside counsel, judges, and others as they review what you need to know to succeed at this increasingly important stage of litigation. JAMS neutral Mark E. Segall, Esq. will join a panel discussion on “Pretrial Settlement Considerations” at 4:00 PM.

This panel will cover settlement considerations. After completing this session, participants will be able to:

  • Decide when and how to begin settlement talks
  • Use mediation - court-annexed and private
  • Develop a negotiating strategy
  • Understand the need for separate settlement counsel
  • Ensure confidentiality of settlement discussions
  • Understand what proper bluffing is and what is impermissible
  • Settle cases remotely
