    Product Description

    Under state or federal rules of civil procedure, parties have the opportunity to depose corporate entities in addition to individuals. Depositions of corporations entail special, and sometimes complex, considerations for both examining and defending attorneys. These complexities including effectively defining the topics for the deposition, finding one or more appropriate witnesses, and policing the line between personal and corporate knowledge.

    Join our experts as we walk through Rule 30(b)(6)’s requirements, the deposition process, and explore pitfalls and best practices to prepare you for your next corporate deposition.
